Sr. Agnes Paulina Maciol, OP

Science Teacher

Favorite Quote: “Rejoice always. Pray without ceasing. In all circumstances give thanks, for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus.” – 1 Thess 1:16-18


Sr. Agnes Paulina grew up in parts of Poland and then moved to California and began teaching at PND in 2021. Sr. Agnes Paulina went into education because she has always been close to academia through undergraduate work, graduate studies and then clinical practice. Being naturally curious through life about what science can teach you about life and its processes as well as having a deep reverence for the spiritual aspect of our existence, brought her closer to the idea that it is better to “contemplate and to share with others fruits of contemplation” (St. Thomas Aquinas). Faith and science have a beautiful way of intertwining and it is important to her to be able to hand on this knowledge to the future generations. Some of Sr. Agnes Paulina’s favorite activities are biking, hiking, baking and spending time with her Sisters! Fun fact: Sr. Agnes Paulina is a big adventure cartoon fan!
