Sister Carol Kampert, formerly Sister Aniceta, entered religious life from St. Joseph’s parish in Duquesne, Pa. She credits her family life and education as instrumental in fostering and nurturing her vocation. She idolized the Sisters who taught her in grade school and says, “I loved being with them and helping them. They were like my family too.”
She taught elementary school in the early part of her ministry before becoming the manager at St. Ambrose Manor in Pittsburgh, Pa. (1992–2002). Since 2002, she has been the health insurance coordinator for the Sisters of Divine Providence, a position she holds dear. “I care about the health of each of our Sisters, and I want to help keep them healthy so that they can remain active in their ministries.”
One of Sister Carol’s favorite mottos is “Let your light shine.” She remembers teaching a little second grader, not of the Catholic faith, who longed to receive Jesus in the Eucharist. “To me, she was a shining example of faith and an inspiration to all the children in the class. The light of God shone through her into my heart.”
Describing herself as loyal, patient, kind, and loving, Sister Carol enjoys learning about the Polish-Austrian culture, swimming, dancing, and reading.
