helping women answer the call...

Jocelyn Collen

Boston, MA

"For as long as I can remember, I have felt called to ordination. No matter where I go, where I serve, nor how many times I have "knocked on the door" my call has not gone away. At the Boston College School of Theology & Ministry while studying for my Master of Divinity, many of my classmates were seminarians who were ordained two weeks after our graduation. I have been to my friends' ordinations, and wept the whole time. I am not sure if I will ever live to see the day when my call will be officially recognized nor answered, but I certainly pray for that day. If that day it comes, I no doubt will be in tears!"
