Sr. Patricia Johannsen grew up on a Montana farm. The call to religious life took her to Kansas, and to South Sudan. The flight to enter the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth was her first time on a plane. She remembers that during the flight, at age 17, she had this specific thought: "This plane could crash."
