Jubilarians 2013: Looking Back Over 70 Years

Sister Jean De Luca 
I was born in Toronto and grew up in St. Patrick’s parish. My years of ministry as a Sister of St. Joseph were either directly or indirectly related to education. For many years, I was a teacher at the elementary, secondary and later at the post-secondary levels. During a five year period, I was involved in addiction research programmes in Toronto and Ottawa. This included individual and family counselling.

Jubilarians 2013: Looking Back Over 60 Years

Sister Margaret Feeley
It was a memorable day — September 7, 1952 — when I said my goodbyes to family and entered the Sisters of St. Joseph. I had attended the Nursing School at St. Michael's Hospital for one year and after my making my first vows, I was missioned to St. Michael's Hospital to complete my nursing training. After graduation, my next ministry was at our Infirmary at St. Joseph's-on-the-Lake, where I was enriched by the lives of faithfulness and prayer of our senior Sisters and the teachers who lived there.
