Judith Connor, CDP

Sister Judy was raised in Fair Haven, New Jersey, by her parents, MaryEllen and Joe, and with her seven older siblings. 

After participating in a long-term volunteer program with the Sisters of Divine Providence in Kingston, Massachusetts, she entered the community in 1999, and then moved to Pittsburgh in 2007. 

Encouraged by her eldest sister, Sr. Judy developed a strong interest in issues of social justice and after graduating from the University of South Carolina in 1988, she entered the field of Social Work, first working in a hospital in Georgia and then with special needs adults in South Carolina. 

As a Sister of Divine Providence, Sr. Judy has furthered her education and ministered as a teacher of religion and Spanish, a basic needs case manager, and a Clinical Social Worker. 

Of her life as a religious, Sister Judy says, “Living a life of service and prayer in the community of the Sisters of Divine Providence has been a sacred blessing and a privilege.”
