A Sister of St. Joseph of Toronto.

Sister Mary Ruth Creamer

I am grateful and happy to have shared in the health care mission of our congregation.
Sister Mary Ruth Creamer felt at home with the Sisters of St. Joseph from the time she was a child. She had an aunt in the congregation, also Sr. Mary Ruth. Through visits with her and attending St. Joseph's High School on Jarvis Street, she was well acquainted with many Sisters.
 
While visiting her aunt, it was through a chance conversation with a doctor at St.

My heart is always touched and nourished...
Nurturing community for me, as a Sister of St. Joseph, has taken place in the health-care field over these 50 years. During my retirement years, as I have been blessed with energy and zeal, I chose to be a presence and share my "hands-on gift" with the poor, the alienated and the homeless at Mustard Seed.

How blessed to be called to so many places... 
Before Sister Margaret Mary McGurk became a Sister, she worked for several years at St. Michael's Hospital, so she knew a few of the Sisters. When a mission in her parish brought into focus the desires she had been experiencing for some years, she turned to Sister St. Nilus at St. Michael's to inquire about entering the Sisters of St. Joseph. She made an appointment and within a week, the deed was done.

And that has made all the difference. — Robert Frost

As I think back on my life, I can see God's hand guiding me even when I resisted that guidance. In high school, I had a good friend with whom I travelled to school. When she was in Grade 12, she began to think seriously about a religious vocation. That started me thinking about how one knew whether or not she has a vocation.

God has surely blessed me and shown me the way.

At the time of my birth, my father, a Roman Catholic, was hoping that I would be baptized in his religion. My mother was a High Anglican and my two brothers and I were baptized in her religion.

As a teenager, forever researching other churches for meaning in my life, I was slowly drawn to the Catholic Church.
