About Sister Nancy Murphy: I am the younger of two children of John and Ann Finley Murphy (both deceased.) While I was born in West Virginia, I grew up in Connecticut where my older brother, John still lives. I attended Catholic junior high and high school which were big influences in my life, but I did not become a sister right away. I worked for the federal government at the National Institutes of Health, Walter Reed Army Medical Center and the Food and Drug Administration for 11 years prior to joining the Daughters of Charity. I was first drawn to service of the poor through the jail ministry I did as a member of the Legion of Mary in my parish. Since becoming a Daughter of Charity, I’ve never looked back — I love my vocation, I love the sisters with whom I’ve lived and served and am especially blessed to serve God in the person of those living in poverty. The charity of Christ crucified urges us!
