On April 27, 2016, the Sisters of St. Joseph of Boston hosted the third annual Living the Dream Dinner. Eileen Connors was honored with the Dear Neighbor Award for her outreach and care of the dear neighbor, while guest speaker, Mark Waters of ReMARKable Cleanouts, spoke from his heart as he told his story of his connection to many Sisters of St. Joseph.
A special moment at the 2016 Living the Dream Dinner was the premier of Serving the Dear Neighbor, a short video featuring the experience and ministries of five “retired” Sisters of St. Joseph. This video demonstrates just a few of the ways in which sisters continue to recreate themselves in order to be of service where there is a need or where they can build relationships and forward the mission of Jesus in today’s world.
This short picture slideshow, shown at the 2016 Living the Dream Dinner, represents Sisters of St. Joseph of Boston as they changed throughout the years, yet their mission, "to work for unity and reconciliation where there is brokenness, to help people become whole and holy, individually and together," has remained the same.
The Sisters of St. Joseph of Boston's mission is to connect neighbor with neighbor and neighbor with God. Sisters Cathy Clifford, Mary O'Rourke, and Pat Andrews accomplish this through education, prayerful presence, and literacy & citizenship. This video is just a brief insight into how the sisters touch those around them.
