Pre-convergence in 2000, the three U.S. provinces of Adorers were already collaborating in a variety of ways including vocation ministry. Lori Benge was interviewed and hired by Sr. Charlotte Rohrbach, Wichita Provincial, and began working with Sr. Diana Rawlings in the vocation office. Fast forward 25 years and Lori was honored on November 8 for her 25th anniversary at the Wichita Center Service Award Dinner. She is the most senior co-worker for the U.S. Region Mission Center.
Over these years, her areas of responsibility have continued to evolve and expand. As the Ministry of Vocations Director, she is in contact with women and men searching for their path in life especially discernment of ecclesial vocations. In addition, Lori as an Associate and Sojourner, also oversees the ASC Spirituality Collaborative which specifically helps individuals find a place within our ASC Family. Lori is also a member of the region’s Communications Advisory Committee in which she creates social media posts, marketing items, and various communication projects to increase awareness about the Adorers.
Congratulations, Lori! We are so deeply appreciative of your outstanding dedication to the Adorers and our ASC Family!
