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.
