Vocation Voices

Mrs. Suzanne Petrouski


Name:  Mrs. Suzanne Petrouski

Congregation:  Vocation Minister for the Little Company of Mary Sisters, American Province

How long in Vocation Ministry: 13 years

Birthplace:  Little Company of Mary Hospital in Evergreen Park, IL. The same place I now work at!

Favorite flavor of ice cream:  Chocolate, although peppermint ice cream with chocolate sauce is a close second.

Favorite Vacation Spot: anywhere near the water.  I recently was fortunate to visit Niagara Falls, Canada.

How do you relax?:  Tending to the garden, playing Sudoku, watching HGTV or Food Network.

I receive the most joy from:  spending time with my family.

BEST PRACTICE:  Throughout the school year, Nursing Students come to Little Company of Mary Hospital for a clinical rotation.  During their orientation we gift them with a small goodie bag.  It contains information about the LCM Sisters and their ministry, a Prayer Card, pen, some sweet treats (a small bag of cookies, chocolate, etc.), and a personally signed “Welcome Note” from one of the LCM Sisters. We want to create a welcoming atmosphere, have them learn more about the sisters and their mission and ministry, and also to help to eliminate some of the apprehension they feel on their first day.  It has been a big hit with the students, and the instructors as well.
