Sister Marguerite started out as first grade teacher in New Jersey, USA and delighted teaching little ones, whom she loved. Later, Sister was involved in parish religious education in Amherst, Bridgewater, Dartmouth, Halifax, and Herring Cove. Her ministry also included spiritual development at Springhill Prison and participation in Diocesan Ministries including the New Beginnings Program. After Sister Marguerite finished her work in parish ministry, she ministered as Hospital Chaplain at the QEll Health Sciences Centre in Halifax until 1997. From 1999 – 2005, Sister was Community Leader at the Sisters of Charity Motherhouse Retirement Community, a ministry for which she is still fondly remembered.
Loved and energized by the One who calls us, we hear the cries of those who suffer and trust the inspiration of the Spirit as we move forward together.
