Being Christlike Means To Heal Those Who Are Suffering
Interview with Fr. Dennis Noorman, M.M. and Sr. Efu Nyaki
In this episode of Among the People, we had two very special guests calling in from Brazil, Fr. Dennis Moorman and Sr. Euphrasia Nyaki, also goes by Sr. Efu.
They speak about their journey to becoming part of the Maryknoll community and their call to dedicate their life to mission. Sr. Efu talks about her passion to serve with women who have gone through trauma and her calling to work with them to heal their wounds.
Fr. Dennis, said his experience with alcohol addiction and other mental illnesses have been the motive for his want to heal people. Fr. Dennis connects his vocation to the priesthood with his call to heal those with mental illness by asking, “What did Jesus do? He traveled around and he healed people. Made people whole and he integrated them back into the community.”
Sr. Efu and Fr. Dennis have been invited to work with organizations all around the world to educate individuals and groups who have gone through trauma on how to heal themselves and be better connected to their bodies. Learn more about Fr. Dennis and Sr. Efu’s work here: Fr. Dennis and Sr. Efu.
