About Sister Tracey

Current ministry: bilingual community organizer for Faith in Indiana

Complete the sentence: My good friend says I’m … stubborn. (I call it perseverance.)

Three things that are sure to make me smile are … a good pun, a beautiful landscape, Trevor Noah

When I am not at work or involved in ministry, you are most likely to find me … in the great outdoors

I am passionate about … healthy food

One thing most people don’t know about me is … that I once jumped off a bridge because everyone else was doing it.
