During evening prayer on February 21, 2017, the Covington Province celebrated the start of Sr. Nicole Marie Varnerin’s apostolic year. Sr. Nicole, a Notre Dame novice, concluded her canonical year of theological study and will now spend her apostolic year putting what she learned into practice.

From February-May 2017, Sr. Nicole will minister alongside Sisters of Notre Dame at the U.S.-Mexico border. Upon returning to the National Novitiate, located in Covington, KY, Sr. Nicole will process her service in Texas, take retreat, visit family, and resume day-to-day formation service and lessons. In August 2017, Sr. Nicole will begin her second major experience by serving with Sisters of Notre Dame at St. Claire Regional Medical Center in Morehead, KY.
