A Sister of St. Joseph of Toronto.

The seeds for this latest ministry were sown at age five.

I lived in St. Monica's Parish, Toronto. Family and parish were always a community affair. Joining another community seemed not so different!

They had impressed me as women who did the work of God without much fanfare.

After high school, I attended the University of Toronto and began studying to be a doctor. I appreciated the challenge of the medical world. But by the end of my second pre-med year, I was experiencing a call to religious life. I decided to enter the Sisters of St. Joseph, who had taught me in school. They had impressed me as women who did the work of God without much fanfare.

I love the surprises God sends to our lives.

As she looks back on her years with her community, Sister Jacqueline de Verteuil says, "My strongest feeling is gratitude. My vocation enables me to use my God-given gifts serving the people of God."

Deep within I hear, "I will show you the path I have chosen for you."

When I was 7-years-old, I attended St. Michael's School, where Sisters of St. Joseph taught me. Sisters Imelda, Norah and Fleurette were all women who touched my life.

My joy is to bring these stories each night to the God who enjoys them even more than I do!

My past 50 years with the Sisters of St. Joseph has morphed into many different shapes. I've participated in the following: media literacy, Youth Corps, prison, community, Christian Family Peace Weekends, parish ministry, lay spiritual formation, social justice, refugee advocacy, protests, St. Francis Table, community kitchens and gardens, mental heath issues, Cherish the Earth, Celebrate Women as well as Furniture Bank.
