Sister Cecelia Tallack

Sister Cecilia Tallack
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.

I was always involved

After vows, I was asked to be a cook and housekeeper, an elementary school teacher, a principal, a Superior, music teacher, Secretary General, a missionary in Haiti and finally, a companion with refugees. As sidelines, I visited prisoners for 17 years and was always involved in choirs in the schools, both for church services and for competitions.

The Flying Nun

Speaking of journeys, besides the travel across Canada more times than I can count, I visited China, Mongolia, England, Wales, Scotland, Italy, many cities in the United States and islands in the Caribbean. My numerous relatives called me 'The Flying Nun.' After 60 years, I think my traveling days are probably over, but my journey is not yet complete. I would never have made it on this journey without the loyalty and support of community."
