Sister Norberta Vandersnick OSB

Preparing breakfast, lunch and dinner for hundreds of Benedictine Sisters and Academy students a day, 7 days a week, is not a job many folks would take on happily. But Sister Norberta loved it, despite the lack of so-called modern conveniences. Despite the lack of air conditioning. Despite the sometimes awkward and restrictive habits they wore for many of the years.

Why did she and Sister Anne, with whom she worked for years, love it?

“We tried to take the beauty of God’s creation and give it back, beautiful. It was a joy to make people happy!”
