One Nun’s Odyssey: A Memoir by Marion Kenneally. This story chronicles the journey of an 18 year-old young woman who entered an Order of teaching nuns in 1952, believing herself to have a religious vocation. After three years of novitiate training she pronounced vows and was assigned to teach in the elementary grades of parochial schools in New Jersey, Baltimore, Fall River and New York. During the last two years of her life as a nun, she matriculated in a program of religious studies at Fordham University. There she enjoyed exposure to many European theologians who proffered enlightened views on religion, and, she ultimately called into question, some of the tenets of the Catholic Church. Ultimately she rejected her faith and sought dispensation from her vows.
