Commitment Day Retreat
Cathy Klopfer, a CSJ Associate, shares her experience of the CSJ Associates Commitment Day Retreat.
It was with great joy and renewed strength that on May 6, 2006, I attended our CSJ Associates Commitment Day retreat under the direction of Sister Anne Lemire and the planning committee.
Three new candidates, Helen Hicks, Nilda Laurino, and Dorothy Ormesher, made their first commitment. We welcomed them to the CSJ Associates with a liturgy and commitment ceremony followed by dinner.
We gathered together in love as a community. Our commitment is one that requires honesty, respect, humility, confidentiality and participation. We reflected on the life struggles and revelations of Jesuit Father Martin Royackers. Our continued thanks go to our director Sister Roberta and the Sisters of St. Joseph of Toronto.
