A Celebration of the Sisters of St. Joseph at the College Residence

The St. Michael's alumni called it "A Celebration of the Sisters of St. Joseph" and the mood was definitely one of celebration. In her invitation to alumni and the Sisters, Director of Alumni Affairs at the University of St. Michael's College, Kathleen Ancker, invited all to "come prepared to smile, to reminisce, to laugh and to enjoy thoroughly your afternoon with students and residents who haunted your footsteps in the past!" Since the residence will see its final year next year, the alumni saw this as a chance to remember their days at St. Joseph's College.

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!

Sr. Ann Delaney's Reflections on the Vocation Conference

It was a wonderful experience for me to attend and participate in the Conference of The National Association of Vocation and Formation Directors. I found it to be refreshing and renewing. The preparation, organization and facilitation were beautifully carried out.

Mary MacInnis, Coordinator of Ministry Programs, and Administrative Assistant, Cindy MacEachern took part, as did a panel of current students and graduates who shared their learning experiences.

Ten Years of Service

The Morrow Park volunteers celebrated their 10th anniversary on April 24, 2005. After Mass and a lovely lunch, Ryerson University's Act II Studio treated volunteers and resident Sisters to their production "I'm Still Here".

A number of the volunteers were among the first members who celebrated their 10th year under the direction of the program founder, Sr. Mary Carol Lemire. Receiving their 10 year pins were: Sandra Desjardin, Patricia Yule, Marie Smith, Erlinda de La Rosa, Katherine Rentschler and Sisters Divinia Pedro, Mary Carol Lemire, Leona Graham and Ruth Leddy.
