While attending the University of Central Florida, Sister Bethany Madonna had a profound encounter with the Lord. This experience drew her heart toward the vulnerable unborn and their mothers. After graduating in 2006, she worked for the Respect Life Office in the Diocese of Orlando. She entered the Sisters of Life in 2007 and made her final vows in 2015. Sister Bethany Madonna currently lives at the community’s Motherhouse, serving her sisters in the Novitiate Formation Program. The Sisters of Life are a contemplative/active religious community of women founded in 1991 by John Cardinal O’Connor, who serve pregnant women, host a variety of retreats, and accompany those suffering after abortion on the journey of healing.
