Sister Speed Skater

Here is some video to use with young people and it comes to us from the Flame National Youth Congress held in March at Wembley Arena in London, England.

Sr Catherine Holum, CFR is a Franciscan Sister of the Renewal, currently residing in Leeds. In 1998, she competed in the Winter Olympics as a member of the U.S. Speedskating Team at the age of 17. Her story of vocation is rare and precious and she will offer interesting insights into the links between faith and sport.

And her vocation was not just a straight lap around the rink. Jesus is all we really need!

D. Scott Miller

Scott recently married the lovely Anne and together they have five adult young people and also grandparent three delightful kids (so, maybe he is just plain old!) Scott presently serves at Saint John the Evangelist in Columbia, MD as the director of youth and young adult ministry.
