Sister Story Highlight

When you meet with this sister, you are greeted by a woman full of joy, with a refreshing smile.  These few lines are to recognize and thank Sr. Helena Monahan, CCVI for her work and commitment to justice, peace, and the care of creation.
In 1996 Sr. Helena received her law degree from the University of Houston Law Center, in response to the needs of the Congregation.  During her time in leadership of the Congregation the “Headwaters Coalition” was created which legally protected 56 acres of green space (near the campus of UIW in San Antonio) for education, environmental protection, and spiritual development for generations to come.

Currently, Sr. Helena serves as the Executive Director of Incarnate Word Academy, an all-girls school in St. Louis, MO.  In this role she has been able to support and encourage many young women to take action promoting human dignity and living the charism of the Congregation.  We are grateful for her prophetic voice and witness!
