What the Christine Center Means to Me
Sister Johanna Seubert, FSPA, recently completed three decades of donated administrative service to the Christine Center. Her unwavering dedication prompted us to ask “What does the Christine Center mean to you? “

“What an amazing place to live and work! I have been at the Christine Center for over 30 years and each day offers wonderful opportunities for spiritual deepening and selfless service. The people who come here are extraordinary spiritual seekers. My heart is full and grateful. We’ve come such a long way from our beginning in 1980. It’s taken a lot of trust and faith in God, who continues to guide us to where we need to go.”

Sister Johanna will happily continue her residence at the Center providing a ministry of presence, hospitality, spiritual guidance and other spiritual deepening programs. We are so grateful for her many years of service!
