Sister Anita Parks
Born in Lansing, MI my family was part of Resurrection Parish until we moved to Grand Ledge when I was in the 7th grade. In my high school years, I attended O’Rafferty, becoming acquainted with Sisters of Charity. After high school I entered the Sisters of Charity, celebrating 50 years as a Sister of Charity, 25 of those years have been here at St. Martha. After 18 years of teaching preschool, I am now involved in visiting and bringing communion to those in residential homes or are home-bound. I also work with the school students, further connecting them to caring for our common home, Earth. Other parts of my ministry involve a sewing group making sundresses for girls in the Philippines and writing weekly for the bulletin so we may be further immersed in the many blessings of the scriptures.
