Sister Joan Wolf is a full-time assistant to the teachers at the Sacred Heart Early Childhood Center in Kingston, Mass. Her ministry has always been in education, having taught at Mount Providence in St. Louis, Mo., for 17 years, and at St. Mary’s in Madison, Mo., for 6 years.
Sister Joan says that her greatest influence to enter religious life was seeing the example of the Sisters who taught her working together, working for others, and serving Christ. She says of her life as a religious, “It is quite rewarding working within the Community, with the mutual respect given to each other. I am most thankful for all the Sisters who have helped me through the years. I am thankful for a Community that has provided for all my needs. I am most proud to be a Sister of Divine Providence.”
In her spare time, Sister Joan enjoys crocheting afghans, sweaters, and baby items for the various Community fundraisers.
