Connectedness. That is what led Jan to become an associate in 2006. Jan’s connections with the SSJ include her education at St. John Grade School and Villa Maria Academy; and working at St. Mary’s Home of Erie and Saint Vincent Hospital. Jan said that becoming an associate seemed to be another logical connection. Her mentor was Sister Mary Kay McNelis. Jan belongs to the Christian Meditation group, which meets monthly at the CLC. She has been part of the group since it was started by Sister Mary Kay in 2001. Jan was one of the original members of the SSJ Prayer Shawl Ministry and is now the coordinator of the group. In 2015, Jan and Associate Mary Lou Rathers walked the last 62 miles of the Camino de Santiago (Way of St. James) in Spain. Jan is the proud mother of two adult children.
