Ep. 4: Nadine & Alan - "Xavier is a place that feeds me, supports my vocation and challenges it." | From Age to Age - Oral History
Nadine, a member of the religious order of the Sisters of St. Francis of Mary Immaculate has a Franciscan heart. Although her order is based in the Midwest, family obligations led her to request to be posted back in the New York City region in the 1980s. Upon her return, conversations during a retreat led her to the Church of St. Francis Xavier, where she eventually become a member and has been worshiping since 1989. Alan, a member of the parish for nearly twenty years, interviews Sister Nadine about her life as a religious, a member of the Xavier parish community and the people who have made the community what it is.
