In 1976 Sister Noel was posted from her home in Donegal, Republic of Ireland to Kenya, after initially resisting her calling from god. Once in East Africa, she worked to nurture babies whose mothers had died in childbirth, weaning them before returning them to their fathers. Her initial encounters with death amongst the babies sent to the care of the convent shocked her, an encounter with tragedy that left a profound effect. Tragedy, both personal and amongst those in her care has strengthened her faith and, after 32 years, Sister Noel returned to the UK and is a volunteer at Petrus in Rochdale.
