   My name is Marlee McAndrew and I am currently a Candidate for the Carmelite Sisters of the Most Sacred Heart of Los Angeles. I am originally from Columbus Ohio where I was raised in a devout Catholic family of seven. I went to Ohio Dominican University where I studied pre-nursing and went on to Mount Carmel College of Nursing where I received my Bachelors of Science in Nursing. It was in college where I first heard the call to the religious life. There was a desire deep within me for something greater. I began looking over my life and realized that I appeared to have everything; a boyfriend, friends, family, and a future career that paid well... yet something was still missing. Christ was indeed in my life, but He was asking for more. He didn’t just want to be a portion of my life; He wanted me completely for Himself. The moment I surrendered to His request, my heart was filled with peace and it has remained the same ever since.

     This year as a Candidate, I am living with five other girls as we pray and work with the sisters to further discern God’s will in our lives. As a candidate, I am not yet obligated to be debt free, but to continue on as an Aspirant, I must be. Although I am working as a nurse at our facility, which will help contribute to reducing my loans, this will not be enough. As of today I owe a total of $22,000. I am now asking you to take the time to consider giving a donation, whether it be money or your prayers. I would be extremely thankful for any amount provided and you can be assured that you and your families will remain in mine and the sister’s prayers.

Please support my habit!!!
