Ann Catherine Fuchs, CDP

Sister Ann Catherine Fuchs recalls that, “One March, in the 1930s, God looked down on the earth and chose to create a little girl with brown eyes and a pleasant smile. She was named Gloria May; I was that little girl. By the time I reached the third grade, I was aware of a special feeling growing within me. I think it was a tiny vocation seed germinating.”
