A Leap of faith

Yahoo sports has a STORY about Sr. Catherine of the Franciscan Sisters of the Renewal, formerly olympic speedskater Kirstin Holum, and her journey from the life of a world-class athlete to religious life.

She says, “Speedskating was such a huge part of my life,” Holum said in a telephone interview with Yahoo! Sports. “I still loved the sport, but I had this incredibly strong calling that it was time to move on and take a different path in life.”
“It is funny now to think of how different my life is now,” she said. ...and now I am blessed to able to serve God and help those less fortunate.”

Do you think God may be calling you to serve in the Church?
