Kirstin Holum (born June 29, 1980) is a retired American speed skater.[1]

Holum was born to the Olympic skier Mike Devecka and Olympic speed skater Dianne Holum, who coached her through entire career. In 1997, Kirstin won the World Junior All-Around Championships and set three national records on the 3000 m distance.[2] Next year, she competed in the 3000 m and 5000 m events at the 1998 Winter Olympics and finished in sixth and seventh place, respectively.[1]

Afterwards, she retired from skating and graduated in arts from a college in Chicago with a thesis on art and the Olympics. She then joined the Franciscan Sisters of the Renewal, a religious order helping poor and homeless people.[3] Later she moved to Leeds, England, where she became known as Sister Catherine at St. Joseph's Convent.[1]
