Global Engagement Inspired Sister to be a Missionary

When she was a child, Saint Frances Cabrini enjoyed making little boats and setting them afloat in a stream in her back yard, pretending to send the word of God to foreign lands with imaginary missionaries.

Sister Hillary Hooks, a member of the Sisters of Divine Providence congregation, smiled as she narrated Cabrini’s story. Inspired by Cabrini’s miniature boats and make-believe missionaries, Hooks dedicated her life to God by becoming a religious sister at age 18. Since then, Hooks has become a genuine missionary herself.
