A Faith Spanning 400,000 Miles
There’s a light shining in the long, dark Alaskan night and her name is Sister Dorothy Giloley, SSJ. As Director of Religious Education for the Diocese of Fairbanks, Alaska, Sister Giloley is responsible for the faith formation of children and adults across more than 400,000 square miles. With so few priests to serve this area, Sister Giloley trains lay leaders, giving them the tools and resources they need to spread the faith. Her guidance is invaluable for Catholic schools and youth ministry as well. With the spirit of determination Alaskans are known for, this Philadelphia native has embraced the people of her new home with a passion to share Christ’s love.
