What: Sisters of St. Joseph of Boston Celebrate 140 years of daring to continue to dream with and for the people of Boston
Who: Sisters of St. Joseph of Boston, associates, friends, family, former students and colleagues with whom we have collaborated for decades
As women of the Church, rooted in the Gospel, the varied ministries of our sisters have always been responded to the varied needs of the Church and world. In our ministries our sisters have worked closely with other men and women in connecting neighbor with neighbor and neighbor with God.
Since our arrival in Boston 140 years ago  thousands of our sisters have worked and continue to work in countless parishes, schools, health ministries, social service ministries, retreat centers, archdiocesan ministries and much more. In these settings we have worked together in nurturing the spiritual life of the people of the greater Boston area.
We acknowledge humbly yet gratefully that from those to and with whom we minister we receive more than we give. This celebration is an opportunity to acknowledge this collaboration and proclaim that we are daring to continue to dream not just for ourselves but for our many neighbors in God’s sacred universe.
