About me: 

Sister Lisa has served in the ministry of teaching on the secondary school level and in congregational leadership as provincial secretary in the United States Province of the Apostles of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.  She shares her love of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Apostle charism through her teaching, witness talks given at discernment retreats and vocation events or by her listening presence as she witnesses to the love of the Sacred Heart of Jesus through her own vocation.
