Sisters of St. Joseph contribute to the life of many parishes. They can be found in cities and in remote areas. They serve in many ways: as pastoral assistants, program animators, outreach program directors, visitors, religious education teachers and lectors. Always, the focus is the same: fulfilling Christ's mission here on earth. Featured below are just a few of these Sisters…
Sister Rosalie Siegler is the pastoral assistant at St. Raphael's Parish in Burlington, ON. Working with the Conventual Franciscans, her ministry includes the faith community of the parish: sacramental preparation, visitation to the sick, ministry to the bereaved, children's liturgy, RCIA coordination, parish pastoral council and other pastoral concerns.
Further north, Sister Enid Selke is in ministry at St. Patrick's Parish Pastoral Team in Kapuskasing, ON. She provides adult faith education for parishioners, facilitates the RCIA Program and offers sacramental programs for St. Patrick's School children and adults. She also serves as animator of ministry for the English-speaking people in the Hearst Diocese.
To the west, Sister Andrea Dumont in Thompson, Manitoba, describes her work as “adult education” which includes training lay presiders for times when there is no priest available, organizing and instructing in the various ministries, sacramental preparation and organizing the RCIA program.
