About the Book

Jane Kelly gives a unique glimpse of what goes on behind convent walls. She tells of her journey from birth to her decision to enter the convent and details her 58 years in the convent. Culminating to a difficult and painful decision to leave the convent. Her choice was based on her desire to continue to minister to the poor and homeless at Plowshares Community Dining Room which she founded in 1983. Her heart would not allow her to leave her poor and homeless friends to seek a comfortable life at the mother house in San Francisco. Sister Jane's heart is with the homeless her desire is to spend her life with the poor. This work could not be done at the Mother house. She realizes that she has a prime opportunity to serve the homeless and poor in Ukiah, CA. She states I will be here until they carry me out in a body bag.
