  • As she approaches 50 years of service to God’s people through the Catholic Church as a nun in the Sisters of Divine Providence, Sister Paula Gohs still loves her job.

    “I love my work,” she said. “I feel sad for people who aren’t happy when they go to work, because my work has always been very exciting. I don’t dread getting up in the morning. I just enjoy what I do. When your ministry is to serve other people, you get back at least if not more than you give and that’s the hundred-fold of religious life.”
