Brooklyn Mother Superior Shares Her Vocation Story

Tags: Currents, Vocations

Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio’s Year of Vocations, a campaign dedicating to cultivating religious callings in the Diocese of Brooklyn gets underway on Friday. Our Konrad Aderer asks Mother Maria Amador, who leads the Brooklyn community of the Preachers of Christ and Mary, about her vocation and the detour she took on the way. In a widely reported story last month, Mother Maria Amador was the nun praying in a pew at St. Joseph’s Co-Cathedral when a disturbed individual threatened her.
