Sister Judith Nero

Originally from Canton, Ohio, I met the Benedictines through Sister Leona who taught me in 7th and 8th grade at Saint Benedict School there.  Her joyful spirit was contagious, and we learned a lot.  My family daily prayer together nurtured my spiritual life. My sister and I learned responsibility early as my mother was physically unable to do the usual housekeeping chores; my father was a steelworker, had a vegetable garden, and maintained the house doing usual repairs.

The parish priests were Benedictines who fostered a strong community bond.  While I went to public high school, and was active in speech and debate and social activities, the appeal of the Benedictine way of daily prayer together and sharing life in Community stayed with me, even three years after high school graduation.

Through the years in ministry--in elementary and secondary education, parish and campus ministry, chaplaincy, religious education, volunteer coordinating of elderly services, vocation director, resident manager of apartments for the elderly--my focus has been to listen and to lead people to renewed life through compassion, understanding, resources, and connections with others. I'm almost a fanatic about re-using and recycling. I am blessed with strength and good health, and desire to use God's gifts to nurture a community of faith and love, justice and peace.
