Sister Susan Slater, St. Stephen's parish life director, who ministered as a pastoral associate for four years at the parish before being named to her present position last year, said she has been accepted as a pastoral leader by parishioners. When she wore an alb on the altar for the first time at a prayer service, "a lot of women said it was nice to see me up there --- even older women," confided Sister Slater, who feels Catholics can adapt to pastoral leadership changes.I wonder, then, what Sister Slater means by this?
Working six days a week, and always on Sunday, Sister Slater balances administrative and pastoral duties such as bereavement counseling, marriage preparation and visiting the sick. "I do whatever the pastor would have done," said Sister Slater.I bet she does! Where is this happening????
