I was born in Seoul. My mother was a Buddhist. When I was in elementary school, my mother sent me to a Protestant Church. However, after I graduated from the elementary school, my mother changed her mind and she did not allow me to go the church anymore. Later, when I began my studies at University, my mother gave me permission to go to the Catholic Church. I was baptized as a Catholic at the age of 21 years old. My mother’s hidden hope in allowing me to be a Catholic was that one day I would meet a good Catholic man. Did her hope come true? I think so. I realize that I have found a good man, that is Jesus, the Good Shepherd. Jesus is so good that he does not only guide me, he also led my mother to the right path. After I entered this Congregation, my mother converted to be a Catholic.
I am in charge of formation of North East Province Mission Partners and Temporary Professed Sisters. I try to work with them in holistic formation. I trust God will help and lead us.
Since my First Profession as a Good Shepherd sister, I have met so many women who have experienced abuse. Inspired by these women, I slowly became involved in a healing ministry. Over time, it has become an important ministry. Nowadays, I am involved in this healing ministry, especially a Healing Retreat for women who have experienced abortion.
As I have become more deeply involved in this ministry I have come to realize that many women have experienced abortion and also experience guilt in their conscience. I lead a 2 night and 3 day Retreat every month with the theme of reconciliation and the forgiveness of God. Participants are between the ages of 20 to 80 years old. As a result of this retreat the participants experience recovery from their abusive experiences, and they also experience reconciliation. I believe that this ministry is the saving power of God for his loving children.
