Testimonials

bible secular instituteI felt the call to consecrated life strongly throughout my entire life and have met and worked with various members of religious communities. But, I continued to realize that, although I greatly respected the communities many of my friends and co-workers belonged to, I knew in my heart that was not the consecration God was calling me to.

Then I was introduced to the OMMI’s through Bishop Gerry Wiesner and got to know the OMMI’s of Western Canada, and all of a sudden my call to consecrated life started to make sense to me!!

My desire to live a simple life, being open to offer my gifts to others without being separated by things such as a title or habit felt right for me. Things such as finding God in everyday life and availability were already major parts of living my faith journey. And the more I learned about the 5 attitudes, the more I saw this as a guiding light on my life’s pathway!! (Especially as numbers 3 and 4 continue to challenge me each day and keep me aware of God’s continuous call to growth in faith, hope and love!)
