Name: Monica Oliver
University : Newcastle upon Tyne, England. I originally trained at a Catholic Teacher Training College. Most teachers then did not go to University. I gained 2 honours degrees at Newcastle University when I was working - English Language and Special needs Education. I am also a TEFL teacher
Hometown: Rochdale, England
Member of SOLT since: 2009
Where do you serve? I did serve in mission in the United States and in the UK. The missions I served in in the UK are now diocesan and not SOLT. I guess I am a wanderer. I do, however, stay in contact with regular visits to OLCC in Corpus Christi, Texas. It now takes me 18+hours to get here. My son is a Permanent Religious Brother in SOLT.
Favourite part of SOLT life: Before the missions closed in the UK, and during my formation in the States, my favourite part had to be working and living together as Ecclesial Family Teams. This worked especially well in Kansas and Robstown.
