Meet a Sister

Sister Anne Purcell
What stands out for me in my years of health care is the people I have met...
I feel very blessed because of all I have received and the opportunities that came my way because of my vocation. In 1959, I began my health care profession as a student nurse at St. Michael’s Hospital, Toronto. During this time, I attended a retreat where I heard myself asking, "How do you know if you have a vocation?" Shortly thereafter, I entered the Sisters of St. Joseph of Toronto.
