Sister Mary Ellen Lacy

DNC july 260218"I was going to become a doctor and then along the way I decided to become a nurse. It was the best change of path I could have made. As a nurse I was really able to care for my patients and be with my patients in a way that doctors can't. People always remember the nurses that take of them in the hospital because we are the ones by their sides. Later I became a lawyer and then a Nun. Now I work in impoverished communities and I get to encounter God everyday." - Sister Mary Ellen Lacy is a public housing attorney with the Legal Aid Society in East Illinois and part of Nuns on The Bus 2016.
