Sisters Receive a Spirited Tribute

St. Columbkille's Parish in Uptergrove, Ontario, had a triple celebration at the eleven o'clock Aug. 14, 2005 mass. Their reasons for rejoicing: the 150th anniversary of the parish, the 100th anniversary of the building of the church and the contributions of the Sisters of St. Joseph to their parish. The mass featured a hymn composed by a Sister of St. Joseph, Be Thou King O Lord, a reference to the Sisters by the homilist and a tribute offered by Margaret Harris, Coordinator of the Lalemant Group of Associates.

An informative and prayerful weekend blessed by God

A SAIL Gathering

Sixty-five Sisters of St. Joseph, from the Toronto, Hamilton, London, Peterborough, Pembroke and Sault Ste. Marie Congregations, gathered at the Motherhouse in North Bay on the weekend of Aug. 26 - 28. On the beautiful shores of Lake Nipissing we prayed, reflected, sang and celebrated being together. In the past few years we have done this seven times in various locations in order to get to know one another and to ponder together our common identity as Sisters of St. Joseph of Canada.

Associates' Commitment Day

On April 16th, we celebrated our Annual Commitment at St. Joseph's Convent. Our speaker, Sister Ann Delaney, provided an informative, spiritual day. Amy Federis sang and played guitar. Our theme was "Hearing the Call of the Shepherd" which provided us with many hours of reflection and sharing. A great day for all!
