A Sister of St. Joseph of Toronto.

I think my traveling days are probably over, but my journey is not yet complete.

"My journey began on the day of my First Holy Communion when I was given a deep conviction that God, for some strange reason, wanted me to follow Him as a Sister of St. Joseph. It continued throughout all my school years, during the period I worked at 'Investors Syndicate of Canada' as well as in the novitiate.

My days are filled with thanksgiving.

The first 10 years of my life were lived in the small, Irish farm community of Colgan, Ontario. My home, where I lived with my parents, five brothers and two sisters as well as my aunt and grandfather, was a place filled with love, music, faith and laughter.

I am even more convinced of the power and necessity of beauty and the arts to nourish the human spirit.

From Quebec, we moved to Toronto in 1942 where I graduated from St. Joseph's College in 1951. The ordinariness of the Sisters impressed me and I appreciated their introduction of social concerns and stories of their western Canada missions. I entered our community after Grade 13 and enjoyed two years of teaching in Ontario and 13 years in Vancouver, Terrace, Prince Rupert and New Hazelton, B.C.

I thank God each day for my call to religious life.

I am a first generation Canadian, born of an Irish mother and an English father. No doubt the biggest single influence on my vocation was my mother, who had a deep reverence for her Sister teachers, the Sisters of St. Louis in Ireland.

I give thanks to God for his unconditional love.

Just recently, while at St. Michael's, a receptionist called me over to hear this story: "Sister, this man remembers when he got a sandwich when he needed it. He doesn't need a sandwich now, but he hasn't forgotten the love and care he received from your group at Inner City Health."
