MORE Weekend

The Sisters of St Joseph Vocation Team is inviting women interested in religious life to join us for a weekend event June 24-26, 2016 in St. Louis Missouri.

The weekend is to have an opportunity for sisters and interested women to share some time in community, prayer and volunteer ministry for a short period of time….

We will have a time for Ministry at two volunteer sites where sisters are active: Marian Middle School and an organic garden.

We will explore the core value of the Sisters of St. Joseph: being One with God and Neighbor. Our congregation is oriented to the unifying love of God and to bringing about our oneness with God and oneness with neighbor.

There will be time for reflection and prayer with the sisters. We will focus on discernment and the call to unifying love.

And finally, there will be time to Engage with the sisters in community, meals and celebration.

With all these components, we are calling it our MORE weekend:

Ministry
One with God and Neighbor
Reflection and Prayer
Engagement

If you, or someone you know is interested in religious life, contact me and get more specifics. We would love to have you with us.

Peace,
Amy

Summer Sisters – An Invitation

Summer Sisters is an idea that we have been kicking around for a few years. The idea is to open our hearts and our homes to one another over the summer. We also thought of this as a possible vocation outreach, inviting women who might be interested in having an experience of religious life for a brief period of time – call it convent-immersion.
