German-born Sister Kristina Wolf recalls, “[At the age of 13] I was totally clear about working in and for the Church because I was very much attracted to Jesus and our faith.” Before entering our Community in 2002, she earned degrees in nursing, theology and pastoral psychology. She made her Final Profession of Vows in Germany in 2010.
Sister Kristina’s current ministry is at the Center for Christian Meditation and Spirituality in Frankfurt. The center was established both to help those who are very engaged in their parishes reconnect with their spiritual sources, and to provide an opportunity for spiritual exploration to those who are not “insiders” of the Church. Sister Kristina is involved in individual spiritual guidance and a special group that trains people to guide others in meditation and contemplative prayer.
For a few hours a week, Sister Kristina meets with patients at a psychiatric outpatient clinic, helping them learn to cope better with their daily life difficulties through awareness and meditation. In addition to her spirituality ministry, Sister Kristina is the head of the Council of the Religious in the Diocese of Limburg, accompanies our Associate Members in the Frankfurt area, and has been a member of the Germany District Assembly for over ten years. Last year, Sister Kristina was elected the new Unit Coordinator for Medical Mission Sisters and Associates in Germany.
