I am Sr. Tresa Jose, a member of the Franciscan Clarist Congregation, an order founded in Kerala, India. I have been at St. Therese teaching Religion and Social Studies (now Religion only) in Middle School, and in our Faith Formation program for almost 50 years. I find joy in sharing my faith and knowledge with the youth, leading them in prayer, Liturgies, and service projects. I continue to enjoy coordinating the National Geographic Bee in our school, a most exciting educational event. I love my vocation as a teaching Sister and I have been greatly blessed by this ministry. St. Therese is my ‘other home’, and I am grateful to God and to our parish community for the amazing ways our FCC community has been welcomed and supported through the years.
