SAVING SOULS: If a young soul wanders, Mother Mary Catherine has dedicated her life to shepherding it back on the path to heaven. 

She is trying to save souls as the founder and mother superior of a newly formed community of Roman Catholic religious women within the Diocese of Green Bay.

They’re called the Missionaries of the Word and their focus is to bring the Gospel to teens and young adults, which can be a volatile age for faith.
