Sister

A Sister of St. Joseph of Toronto.

Sister Sue Mosteller

Sister Sue Mosteller
My life-journey has been one of relationships with wonderful and amazing people, some of whom were disabled, and all of whom shaped my transformation.

Sue Mosteller came from Ohio to boarding school with the Sisters of St. Joseph. "The Sisters were open, friendly, and their spirit and vitality drew me, and made me thrive." She later entered the order.

You want to do whatever you can to assist people where their need is.

Sister Roberta describes her arrival in Toronto from Quill Lake, Saskatchewan, as providential:

"From the time I graduated from high school, I really felt the call to religious life... When I came to Toronto, the first place I saw was St. Joseph Convent on Bay Street, so one day I went in to meet a Sister of St. Joseph whose family I knew in Calgary. From there on, I proceeded to enter and have been a member of the Congregation for over 50 years."

Sister Rita Marie McLean

My life in community ... has been the bedrock that has kept me rooted in the good times and the bad.

I was born in an Ontario mining town. My early faith depended on my mother, who regularly sent me to catechism. God also spoke to me in the landscape of rocks and lakes where I swam and in the skies lit by the Aurora Borealis.

God came along, picked me up, wiped off the mud and saw I was beautiful.

I was born in Saskatchewan. My family moved to Vancouver when I was 5 and the Sisters of St. Joseph taught me in high school.

Sister Patricia Macaulay

Sister Patricia Macaulay
My ministry pattern has been to first work in a ministry, and then enrich that experience with further education.

Since 2007, I have been living and working in Fort St. James B.C. Father Frank Salmon OMI had been without Sisters for one year. The elders prayed for Sisters to come to help him — and they got three!
