Commemorative Tree Planted

On the bright, sunny, afternoon of June 17, 2003, a brief but significant ceremony marked the planting of a sturdy young maple tree on the lawn at Morrow Park to commemorate Sister Winnifred O'Mara, who died in June 2002. Planned and led by sisters Eva and Priscilla Solomon, Sisters of St. Joseph of the Sault Ste Marie Congregation, the ritual led us to see the hole as representing the void left by Winnifred's death; this we filled with our private memories of her life.

CSJ Associates Picnic

One picture is worth a thousand words, isn't it? Welcome to our CSJ Associates' Annual Picnic on June 28, 2003 at Morrow Park. Here are two pictures that tell the whole story, one of Sister Roberta Freeman cutting the cake, the other of CSJ Associates and Sisters gathered around the table.

Jubilee Day at the Motherhouse

On June 8th, 2003 the Sisters of St. Joseph held a Jubilee day at the Motherhouse and most of the Sisters of the Congregation were present. Twenty-two celebrants marked the special anniversaries of 75, 70, 60, and 50 years as Sisters. The collective total comes to almost 2000 years in God's service! It was a three-fold celebration of God's faithfulness in our lives as Church, as congregation, and as individuals.

Fontbonne Place Welcomes the Neighbours

It's official! Fontbonne Place was opened, blessed, written up and celebrated on March 19, 2003. On the feast day of St. Joseph, we welcomed over 400 neighbours and friends. Fontbonne Place, located in Toronto on Queen St., offers affordable housing to 18 women. They are housed in one-bedroom apartments on the top two floors while many community-building programs take place on the lower levels of the building. Judging from the crowds, smiles and general spirit, the day was a success.

Fontbonne Place Fundraiser

The residents of the affordable housing site, Fontbonne Place, had baked to-die-for lemon-squares and pecan cookies. On Saturday morning, June 21, 2003, they added flowers and cellophane and sold their wares from the front lawn. The Craft group offered up Raggedy Ann's, plaques and mice dolls.
