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.

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.

The Sisters of St. Joseph mourn the loss of Pope John Paul II

Pope John Paul II has a special place in the hearts of the Sisters of St. Joseph. The Sisters were privileged to host the Holy Father at Morrow Park during World Youth Day 2002 from July 27 to July 29.

They join the world in mourning the passing of a spiritual leader who has, since 1978, reached out to youth and all people around the world.
