During her early years in the congregation, Sr. John Celeste Weitzel ministered in education but later studied to be a physical therapist. When she moved from Baltimore to the Aston area in November 2015, she came with a dream—to work with our sisters at Assisi House who were not getting PT for a specific problem.
Why Become One of Us?
Use your unique gifts to serve in the gaps and margins of our world.

Be a part of something greater than yourself and respond to the spiritual and physical emptiness God calls us to fill.
