Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur

Sister Gerry Bolzan

Sister Gerry Bolzan is currently in ministry as Acting Director for Sisters in Initial Commitment for the Kenya Unit of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur. She has been in Kenya since 2005. Prior to that, she served as Vocation Director for the Ohio Unit for nine years and during the last two of those years, she was also the site coordinator for the Notre Dame-AmeriCorps program in Chicago. Other ministries have included Pastoral Ministry at St. Bonaventure and Our Lady of Guadalupe parishes as well as high school teaching at three Notre Dame schools: Notre Dame High School, Chicago, Mt. Notre Dame H.S., Cincinnati and Julienne H.S., Dayton, OH.

Borrowing from another Scripture passage, she can say: “Lord, it is good to be here!” Her ministry among the young women aspiring to religious life in Kenya is very life-giving for her. The needs of the Church in Africa – and Kenya in particular, are many. Sr. Gerry recognizes that it is good to work with young people who desire to respond to those needs.
