Sister said “I love working with refugee families. Many of them have many needs and horrific stories to share and I enjoy being with and walking beside them supporting and caring for them in a most compassionate way”. One of the highlights of Sister Rachel being a Sister of Compassion was her big trip overseas for a sabbatical year. She travelled to Italy where she studied theology. At the completion of the course, sister travelled to Poland, the country where her mother was born. Her Dad at the age of 84 joined her in Italy and took the opportunity to visit his sister.
