Hello to everyone and blessings to you as you read this. My name is Victoria Hood,
and I am the newest member of Future of Charity. I am from the Leavenworth
congregation, so am currently living in Kansas City, Kansas, as that is where the
formation house is. I am a first year candidate, having had my Rite of Welcome on
October 9, 2016. I first became acquainted with the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth
through employment at the Mother House and Ross Hall (the nursing home). During my
employment I did the following in no specific order: earned a Master's degree, began
taking martial arts lessons and achieved the rank of first degree black belt in karate,
went on a group pilgrimage to the Holy Land, learned how to sew with only a few
lessons (purely by hand, the machine still eludes me), and began discernment followed
by applying to the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth.
We're so thankful that Victoria has answered Yes! Please include her in your prayers as she embarks on this new journey with us.
