15 Aug 1940 at the age of 19,
Patricia entered the Ursuline community as a novice. She made her
first vows on 15 Aug 1942 and made her Perpetual Vows on 15 Aug 1945 at the age
of 24.. She was known as Sister Zita. Sister Zita was a school teacher
during the years she was in the Ursuline Community.
After 23 years in the community Patricia received dispensation from her vows on
13 Jul 1963. The records do not give the reason for
her leaving. Most communities had members leaving in the 60s because of
the many changes in the church, community, etc. the records show her intention
was to transfer to the community of Sisters of Mission Service, a new community
which had been founded in Saskatoon in the 1950s. for one reason or
another the transfer did not or could not happen and so an indult of
secularization was received.
