Sister Bethany Madonna entered the Sisters of Life in 2007. While attending the University of Central Florida, she had a profound encounter with the Lord, which drew her heart toward the vulnerable unborn and their mothers. After her graduation in 2006, she worked for the Respect Life Office for the Diocese of Orlando before joining her religious community.
Immersed in Eucharistic prayer within a vibrant community life, their missions include caring for women who are pregnant and in crisis, accompanying college students on campus, inviting those suffering after abortion to receive the healing mercy of Jesus, intercessory prayer, retreat works, and fostering a Culture of Life through evangelization.
Sister Bethany made her final vows in 2015, and currently lives at the community’s Motherhouse serving as the Vocation Director. She is passionate about sharing the message of life and love.
Sister Bethany was Co-Chair of the of the inaugural 2016 GIVEN Forum along with Sister Mary Gabriel, SV. Together with their community, they conceived of the idea to host a leadership forum for young women throughout the United States with the aim of helping them to “receive the gift they are, realize the gifts they’ve been given, and respond with the gift that only they can give.”
