I would like to thank all of you for your support, prayers and for walking with me. Without your assistance, I would not be where I am today. Thank you for being here during this special time in my life.
To my family, for your support, love, and prayers throughout this journey. I could not have made this journey without each of you. I love you! I want to thank my mom who has been my #1 support and who has told me to keep the faith and has journeyed with me. To my Tia Mary who believed in me and supported me, thank you.
To my friends: all of you have been a part of my journey. Know that each one of you is in my prayers. Also, I want to thank our CCVI associates and my Inter-Community companions who also journeyed with me. Thank you so much for all of your support and prayers.
I thank God for my CCVI Sisters! Everyone of you has played a role in my life, my vocation. Each one of you has inspired me.
I want to thank all those who played a role in my Formation: Sisters Marichui Bringas, RoseAnn McDonald, Juanita Albracht, Brigid Marie Clarke, Cathy Vetter, and Helena Monahan. Each of you has given me a piece to carry along into this journey of CCVI life. I feel well-prepared to move forward. I want to include my new director, Dorothy Batto, for accepting the role to walk with me into a new path of CCVI life. Thanks to all who have journeyed with me. Thank you for being completely who you are. This way I can be who I am, who I am made to be. Thank you, God, for not giving up on me and providing all the friendships that have come with the journey.
Sister Christi Sanchez, CCVI.
