Vocation: What is it?  Do I have one?  Now what?

Come and hear Sister Jenny Zimmerman, SND’s talk “Vocation: What is it? Do I have one? Now what?” 

Doors open at 7:00 p.m. and program will begin at 7:30 p.m.

Vocation is a word that we might often hear, however, do we really know what it means?  It’s just something that priests and nuns have right?  Think again!  Come hear Sister Jenny talk about “Vocation: What is it?  Do I have one?  Now what?”  Bring your questions and an open heart as we take a deeper look into the unique call that God has for each one of us!

Sister Jenny Zimmerman, SND

Sr. Jenny grew up in Defiance, OH and completed her undergraduate degree in Exercise Science, with a concentration in Athletic Training.  Entering the Sisters of Notre Dame in 2004, she earned a Master of Theology degree from Lourdes University in Sylvania, Ohio and a certification in the Art of Spiritual Direction from LMU and the Loyola Institute of Spirituality. Sr. Jenny has served in a variety of ministry roles, including hospital chaplain, campus minister at high school and university levels, theology teacher, and strength and conditioning coach. Currently, as the National Vocation Director, she enjoys leading retreats, guiding young adults with spiritual mentorship, and walking with others in their joys and struggles of the faith journey.

Theology on Tap

Theology on Tap is an invitation for young adults ages 18-39 to learn more about their faith and to share in the Catholic community. Theology on Tap is structured around a series of events centering on faith topics of interest to young adults. These events can be held in a restaurant, a parish hall, a coffeehouse, even in a bar; places where young adults already are comfortable and feel welcome.

These events feature an engaging speaker presenting a theological topic, time for discussion, faith sharing, and community building.

About Sister Paulynne Tubick

From her earliest days in ministry, Sister Mary Paulynne Tubick dedicated herself to the education of youth and has never stopped updating her skills as a teacher and principal of elementary schools. While she has successfully ministered to children of various economic groups, her love and focus continues to be, “For the poor,” as she experienced during her years at St. Lawrence of Brindisi School in South Los Angeles, CA. Sister Paulynne first volunteered to go to St. Julie’s School in Buseesa, Uganda in 2001, where she served as a full-time teacher, treasurer for both the high school and elementary school, and maintenance coordinator for the mission property. She returned to California in 2005, teaching at St. Mathias High School in Downey, CA and at St. Hedwig’s Elementary School in Los Alamitos, CA. In 2013, she once again heard the missionary call and returned to Buseesa for an additional three-year term, ministering as head teacher, maintenance supervisor, payroll manager and formation instructor for the native Ugandan sisters. Sister Paulynne enjoyed watching the growth and development of St. Julie’s Nursery School for 2-1/2 to 5 year-old children whose parents are subsistence farmers near the mission in Uganda. As principal, convinced of the importance of empowering others, Sister Paulynne worked to bring out the best in her teachers. She established an administration team and shared responsibility, helping to foster leadership among the Ugandan teachers. The call to mission is a powerful part of the Tubick family heritage. Sister Paulynne’s sister was the late Sister Gabriella Tubick, a member of the Daughters of St. Paul. Sister Gabriella herself was a missionary in Pakistan and Australia and also served in Italy. Sister Paulynne has promoted the SND pioneering spirit with trust in God’s goodness and providence, and she continues to educate and inspire through her current ministry in teaching.
