Joan Bukrey, OSF
I was born and raised in St. Paul, MN. I have 3 siblings. I entered the Sisters of St. Francis of Assisi in Milwaukee, WI and was professed in 1964. Most of my working years as a Sister have been in some form of education. I taught junior high students and served parishes in the field of religious education. I also helped recruit and prepare new candidates to religious life. I have been on the Thomas More Preaching Team since 1988; it is the most challenging and rewarding work I have done in my ministry as a Sister of St. Francis. I find it refreshing being outdoors, walking, and observing wildlife, especially birds, both in the USA and in Australia.
