Do you feel a call to consider religious life? Join us for our Dive Deeper Vocation Discernment Retreat on November 9!
As the Vocation Formation Team of the Missionary Servants of the Most Blessed Trinity, we have the distinct pleasure of accompanying single Catholic women as they discern God’s call in their lives. If you are discerning your call, then we invite you to contact us to learn more.
We are an apostolic community of Roman Catholic women religious.
We exist to give glory to the Trinity!
Our specific mission is the preservation of the faith, in those areas and among those people who are spiritually neglected and abandoned, especially the poor. Our chief effort is to develop a missionary spirit in the laity, with the goal that every Catholic be an Apostle.
The MSBT Vocation Team Welcomes
Sr. Virginia Wagner, MSBT
Sr. Virginia Ann, known as Sr. Ginny, grew up in Akron, Ohio. Sr. Ginny was raised in a large Catholic family and is the fifth of eleven children. She heard about Missionary Servants of the Most Blessed Trinity in high school and was drawn to the community because of the MSBT mission to work with the poor and abandoned.
Sr. Ginny spent 15 years in Mexico serving the people as a nurse practitioner and visiting the sick. Sr. Ginny says she learned so much living in Mexico and said, “My best education was from the people I served”.
Her most recent ministry has been serving on the MSBT General Council for ten years.
She will be serving as Vocation Director and Candidate Director. Sr. Ginny finds journeying with women who are discerning their call in life the most exciting aspect about her new venture.
Sr. Grace Raymond Tighe, MSBT
Sr. Grace Raymond, who has also been missioned to the new Vocation Formation Team, grew up in Brooklyn, New York. Sr. Grace Raymond’s longest mission was in Phenix City, Alabama where she served 14 years in all, serving as a math and science teacher and also as principal of the school.
She also served three different missions in Mexico in Religious Education, Pastoral Ministry and the development of small faith communities.
Sr. Grace Raymond is looking forward to being in the initial Formation ministry, for the second time. She is currently serving as Novice Director.
