Sister Ignatia Henneberry, with the Sisters of St. Francis of Perpetual Adoration, had student loan debt when the started discerning religious life. She had faith that her debt would not be a barrier. Due to the generosity of others, including her grandmother and the Mater Ecclesiae Fund for Vocations, Sister Ignatia was right.
Sister Ignatia recently took over the role of Vocations Director with the Sisters of St. Francis of Perpetual Adoration. She’s new to her role but she’s not naive as to how student loans debt will affect the ability of other young women to say “yes” to their vocation. We were so blessed to have Sister Ignatia share her story as we wrap up this series on student loan debt.
