Sr. Mary Ann Jansen

After many years teaching, facilitating retreats, and coordinating workshops, Sr. Mary stepped into retirement or “maybe retirement.” I’m grateful for the time to: read, study, write, walk (usually with the family dog), while dealing with and discovering challenges from a 2014 bone marrow transplant for leukemia.


One way or another she is still involved with people. St. Angela’s inferred insight plays out: Every encounter reveals the human soul, the other’s, and one’s own.
