Pray With Us

On August 15 in ordinary time, we celebrate the Assumption of Mary, taken body and soul into heaven.
It is not recorded in Scripture. In Scripture we learn of the death of prophets and patriarchs. In the Holy Land we visit many of these burial places. Even Jesus died and was laid in a tomb. But nowhere will you find the burial place of Mary.

Meet a Sister

Sister Grace Sauvé Sister Grace Sauvé
After more than 60 years as a Sister of St. Joseph, I am grateful to be able to be a word of God to those around me.

As the eldest of eleven children I had a great training ground for life in a religious community. We moved often, from city to country and places of beauty that gave me a sense of oneness with the Mystery of God. I met the Sisters of St. Joseph in summer school catechism classes and later at St. Joseph’s College School in Toronto.
