SARANAC LAKE - Sister Rita Mawn felt the call of God to a consecrated life since grade school. She attended St. Mary's Catholic school in St. Albans, Vt. for 12 years. "The sisters encouraged us to go into a life of consecration," she said. "In fourth grade, I read a story about nuns who stayed in the monastery and prayed all day for the rest of the church and the world. That appealed to me. Later, I investigated the Carmelite monastery in Saranac Lake, where I lived for 29 years - until 1984."
