Sr. Fiat Marie, SV grew up in the middle of the woods in the small town of Onsted, Michigan. Deeply moved by the beauty of God’s image within each human person, and experiencing a profound call to consecration, she entered the Sisters of Life in 2005. Before entering she graduated from Franciscan University of Steubenville with a degree in Humanities and Catholic Culture and in Theology. Sister professed her final vows in 2015, and currently serves at the Community’s most recent foundation in Phoenix, AZ. Here Sister has the privilege of accompanying pregnant women in crisis as well as serving in a mission of evangelization to the good students of Arizona State University.
The Sisters of Life are a religious community of women founded in 1991 by John Cardinal O’Connor who take a fourth vow to protect and enhance the sacredness of human life. Immersed in Eucharistic prayer within a vibrant community life, their missions include caring for vulnerable pregnant women and their unborn children; inviting those wounded by abortion into the healing mercy of Jesus; fostering a Culture of Life through evangelization; retreat works; spiritual accompaniment of college students; and upholding the beauty of marriage and family life.
