Sr. Emer O’Shaughnessy

Congregation of the Sisters of Mercy

I didn’t suddenly wake up one day and decide that I was going to be a sister or to go nursing, or to work and live in Peru. One thing led to another. The people here really have a very low standard of living and working together we are trying to improve it. There are three of us sisters here in Mache. It is good to have our everyday life together, supporting, and urging one another on. The centre of our life together is our time to prayand share who we are, whom God is for us, where our work and the people are calling us to go next.
