She currently ministers as director of Catholic Deaf Ministry for the Archdiocese of Portland, a position she has held for many years.

Sister Linda shares, “I’ve been blessed to have worked with the Deaf most of my ministerial life, especially in my 30 years with the Catholic Deaf in the Portland Archdiocese. Their unique language and culture—and their strong sense of community and care for each other—inspire me. As a faith community we’ve extended this care to include outreach to those in need in our neighborhood and around the world. Deaf leadership and pride are alive and well in Portland!”

A celebration for Sister Linda will also take place in Portland at the end of June.

I have been privileged and encouraged to do so many things—teaching history, being campus minister, vice principal, and now principal. I have been very fortunate to travel as a BVM to so many places. Most memorable has been the Lourdes Pilgrimage during Holy Week which helps me to realize the worldwide Catholic community and respond to the journey that God calls each of us to follow.”
