In Loving Remembrance

To remember is to celebrate. We remember with love each of these women, our sisters and friends, who died during the past year. We celebrate their lives and the example that they offered to the Sisters of Saint Joseph, their families, their friends, the church and the world.

These women embraced the call to “Let your life be a continuous act of love.” (Maxims of the Little Institute). They lived lives of faithfulness and commitment while they were with us, and we depend upon them now to continue to pray on our behalf.

May they rest in the arms of the loving God they so faithfully served!
