Sr Grażyna (Grace) Rocławska
Sister Grażyna (Grace) was born in Gdynia, Poland. In 1991 she entered the Congregation of the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth in the Krakow Province, and professed her Final Vows in 1998.
Her ministry in Poland included teaching and pastoral work in a number of schools and parishes. In early 2000 Sister discerned the possibilities of her ministry for the Congregation and volunteered for the Congregational Program for Mission, resulting in her transition from Poland to Australia in 2004.
Since her arrival to the Land Down Under, she has learnt not only the language but also the stories of the people. Initially, she was engaged in the various province ministries to families in the field of childcare and aged care.
In 2009, Sister moved into pastoral work as Youth Minister and Sacramental Coordinator in the Diocese of Parramatta.
After a decade of parish ministry, Sister began working as the Programs and Engagement Representative for the Institute for Mission in the Diocese of Parramatta (www.ifm.org.au).
From 2011- 2016, Sister assumed the role of the Provincial Leader, while continuing her part-time engagement in ministry. From 2017, Sister Grace has served as Provincial Treasurer/ Councillor for the Holy Spirit Province. She enjoys music and cooking.
She loves sharing her passion for Christ and His church with others.
