Sister Jennifer Frazer, Scholastic

Sister Jennifer Frazer entered into the Novitiate year on Saturday, May 2, 2020, when she expressed her desire to seek God with the Benedictine Sisters of Erie during the community’s Vigil Prayer. Jen, an artist and musician with a background in theology, is from the Boston area. She has an undergraduate degree in Art and a Master of Divinity (M.Div.) and Master of Theology (Th.M.) from Boston College. During her postulant year she worked in community ministries: Saint Benedict Child Development Center and the Inner-City Neighborhood Art House.

The novitiate year is a special time in the initial monastic formation process where one is immersed in community life and fully experiences the living tradition of the Benedictine Sisters of Erie. Through prayer and study the novice has time to focus more intensely on deepening her relationship with God, self, others, and her sisters in community.
