Sister Olive Halpin mo
I was born and raised in the little French Canadian town of St. Eustache in Manitoba. My family moved to St. Boniface, Manitoba, where I finished high school and entered the Missionary Oblate Sisters (MO). After my training to become a sister, I completed my university degree (B.Ed) and received my Teacher’s Certificate. I taught for 25 years in both Catholic and public schools in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta.
I worked as host coordinator at our MO Renewal Center for three years, as director of our St Charles Retreat Centre for one year and as a support person in a centre for personal and spiritual growth for nine years. I am a certified translator and hold a certificate in Pastoral Studies.
In April 2005, I participated in the RTS 5-Day workshop and, in January 2006, I embarked on an adventure - that of being a trainer with the RTS program! It has been quite the ride - a transformative and empowering one! I am truly grateful!
