Pray With Us

The angel Gabriel was sent by God to a town in Galilee called Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man named Joseph; and the virgin’s name was Mary.  He went in and said to her, "Rejoice, so highly favoured! The Lord is with you."
 
She was deeply disturbed by these words and asked herself what this greeting could mean. But the angel said to her, “Mary, do not be afraid; you have won God’s favour. Listen! You are to conceive and bear a son, and you must name him Jesus.

Meet a Sister

Sister Marie Howorth Sister Marie Howorth
Over the years, my relationship with God has deepened.

I grew up in Toronto in a Catholic family with six children. I attended St. Joseph's School on Leslie St. In Grade 8, I was chosen to crown Our Lady in our school's outdoor procession. Then I attended St. Joseph's College School. In Grade 13, I was on the student council. I was impressed by many of my teachers, who were Sisters of St. Joseph.
