Helping Others Heal Sister Pauline Dalpe is receiving more calls these days, and COVID is the cause. A counselor for 35 years, Sister Pauline says many calls begin as a plea for prayer. “Then they tell me their situation. That’s when we do more than just pray,” she says. Not all the folks need more counseling, but Sister Pauline’s client base remains steady. First meetings often are in person followingall safety protocols, then shift to conversations by phone or Zoom. “In between phone calls, I try to send them a note of encouragement, something inspiring,” she states. “During the nicer weather, we moved outdoors, sitting by the garden and the woods,” Sister Pauline continues. “That was such an enriching experience. The environment was comforting and nature itself de-stressed everybody. It offered us privacy and multiple benefits.” To learn more about Sister Pauline, visit our YouTube Channel’s Vocation Stories playlist.
