Sister Bobbi Bussan OSB

Sister Bobbi had been active in her parish throughout high school, but had drifted away from the church in college. “I did my fair share of partying,” she remembers, “but I also began to know what my gifts were. I really liked organizing activities, and thought I wanted to run a student union some day."

After college, Sister Bobbi began working for the Benedictines as an RA in their academy. She began to feel a call to stay.

"I found the community a real comfortable fit. I liked the feeling of family, the rhythm of their prayer, their hospitality. I liked that they welcome each person as Christ. I liked their integration of prayer and ministry.

"I entered in 1977. The community always accepted me as I am — blue jeans and everything. I've always marched to a different drummer, and I feel like I belong.”

Sister Bobbi today serves as Benet House Director. She also serves at St. Joseph the Worker House, a transitional residential facility for homeless women and their children.
