Called by Jesus, on the day I graduated from Mount St. Mary's High School, at St. Mary's Cathedral in Fall River, with the assistance of a priest, Father James Joseph Davis, O.P., and a former teacher, Sister Mary Adele Thomas. I entered the Sisters of Mercy Novitiate at Mount St. Rita. I was privileged to teach children for five years, serve as activities director at Mount St. Rita Health Centre for 13 years, and minister as a physical therapist at Morton Hospital for 32 years.
