A Sister of St. Joseph of Toronto.

Sister Anne Marie Marrin

The women who mentored me in all these experiences taught me that everyone is to be treated with respect and dignity.

Home was the foundation of my vocation where faith was lived, not necessarily talked about, and living in the community has given me great opportunities to express that love in ministering to others.

Deep down I knew this was where I should be.

My entrance into this world happened in St. Catharines, Ontario. During primary classes, when a visiting missionary spoke to us, I decided I wanted to be a missionary, but in my mind there was no connection between that and being a "nun."

I grew in attentiveness to all the ways God accompanies me as I follow the longings I experience.

"Each morning the Lord awakens me to listen." (Isaiah 50:4) Many years ago, this passage entered my heart so that I grew in attentiveness to all the ways God accompanies me as I follow my longings. As I reflect back I perceive care and delicacy in this accompaniment and also amazing surprises.

Sister Mechtilde O'Mara

Sr. Mechtilde O'Mara, CSJ
My prayer was to have the wisdom to know God's will and the courage to do it.

Aware of God's great love, I desired from an early age to respond by loving God as fully as I could. This desire was my constant companion and led to my becoming a Sister of St. Joseph. Because two of my aunts were Sisters of St. Joseph and the Sisters were my teachers in nearly every grade from the third until university, I felt that I knew and admired these Sisters for their evident dedication.

Sister Thérèse Meunier

There seemed to be a longing for something else in my life.

I will share with you how the call from God looked like and felt like for me. It will come in a different way for each person.
