Missioning: Sent to Serve the Lord and One Another

On Sunday, Oct. 3, 2010, the Sisters of St. Joseph of Toronto, along with the CSJ Associates, gathered in Morrow Park chapel to be "missioned." Each year on the feast of St. Joseph, the Sisters renew their vows of chastity, poverty and obedience; this renewal is a reminder of who they are. The annual missioning ceremony is a reminder of what they do.

Associates Renew Their Commitment and Welcome New Members

On April 18, 2010, over 60 CSJ Associates and Sisters gathered to share liturgy and lunch and celebrate the Associates’ Annual Commitment Ceremony. The morning featured an opportunity for current and new associates to join in prayers and reflections. In small groups, the associates shared with each other what their associate commitments meant to them, how the charism of the community shaped their lives and service to others, and how the associates brought light into the world.
