On Tuesday, December 19, 2017 the Sisters of Notre Dame welcomed Michelle Blevins as a postulant. Michelle will move to the national postulancy in Covington, Kentucky on January 2, 2018 to continue in formation in preparation for entering the national novitiate.
Michelle is the daughter of Ernie and Marge Blevins. She graduated from Holy Name High School, Parma, Ohio and earned a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration with a concentration in Business Finance from Baldwin Wallace College, Berea, Ohio in 2002. Michelle also received Certification in Computer Information Systems in 2009 and completed a second Major in Computer Science in 2012 from Baldwin Wallace University. Before entering the Sisters of Notre Dame, for 13 years Michelle was employed at PNC Bank where she worked as a quality assurance specialist during her final years with the company.
Sister Kelley Rush, vocation director expressed, “It has been a blessing and privilege to accompany Michelle in her discernment these past 16 months.” She echoes the sentiments of the provincial Sister Margaret Gorman who said, “Michelle, for our community it is a joy and, at the same time, a responsibility to receive new members who desire our way of life. We lovingly receive you into our community as a postulant. We want to support you as you explore your vocation to the Sisters of Notre Dame.”
