The Prairie Messenger, February 19, 2014 — Sister Mary Rose Marrin has a message for churches and for society in general: look at aging as a spiritual journey and assist maturing adults during this passage. Issues of purpose and meaning become more urgent as people age. A ministry that supports the lifelong faith development of women and men is essential. In a world where peoples’ longevity has increased by 30 years over the last century, her message is timely.
On January 27, 2013, Sisters Dorothy Schweitzer, Terry Dalla and Jacqueline de Verteuil, pictured at right, as well as Sr. Rosemary Fry participated in Newman Centre’s celebration of Consecrated Life with a display illustrating the Sisters of St. Joseph’s ministries. Many other men and women religious participated in this lively event.
