Sister Tina Becker

Becker_Tina_12Sister Tina Becker was born in Beckingen, Germany, in 1975. A registered nurse, she also was trained as a pastoral worker and worked in a parish for six years. After entering the Medical Mission Sisters in 2006, Sister Tina continued her pastoral ministry. From 2012-2013 she visited East Africa for nine weeks, spending time in Kenya and Uganda. She was struck by the poverty and violence around her, and was especially moved by her experience with the “kids club,” a group of small children who were HIV-positive. Returning to Germany, she took a position as a hospital chaplain in Frankfurt, where she currently accompanies patients suffering with cancer. Sister Tina focuses on caring for those with cancer and other serious illnesses and helping young women in their search for direction in life.
