Pray With Us

The Easter Season, which begins with Easter Sunday and ends with Pentecost, is a time of great joy. These 50 days celebrate the resurrection of Jesus and the restoration of creation. 
 
Wind! Fire! Fear! Awe! Chaos!  These are signs of that first Pentecost, signs that produced “new life” for ages to come.

Meet a Sister

Sister Mary Carol Lemire Sister Mary Carol Lemire
Above all, I am most grateful to God for God's fidelity to me.

I was born in Toronto. At St. Joseph's College School, staffed by Sisters of St. Joseph, it would have been difficult to be immune to the inspiration of the Sisters' dedicated lives. I loved my Grade 1 teacher, Sister Mary Alban Hennessey, and often remained after school to help her. My mother tells me I had voiced my desire, even then, to be a Sister. Sister St. Ivan, my Grade 8 teacher, was another strong influence.
