Sisters of St. Joseph & lay associates focus of program in Lawrenceville

July 29, 2019 at 12:37 p.m.


A morning of learning and reflection about the mission, spirit and spirituality of the Sisters of St. Joseph and their lay associates will be held May 4 from 9 a.m. – noon in the St. Ann Parish Faith Development Center, 1253 Lawrence Rd., Lawrenceville.

The event, presented by the Trenton area group of Associates in the Mission, as lay associates are known, will offer insight about the work of the Sisters of St. Joseph which was founded in 1650 in Le Puy France by the Jesuit missionary Jean Pierre Medaille with the intention of helping a population decimated by years of war and extreme poverty.

The history of the order, which endured suppression during the Reign of Terror that followed the French Revolution, and its ongoing relevance in our times when the sisters still live among and work with marginalized populations will be shared.

The mission of the lay associates, who share a commitment to the sisters in many ways, ranging from prayer for the mission and attending events sponsored by the SSJ Associates in Mission to serving as full time lay volunteers who work for a year or two in full-time ministry with the sisters, will be explored.

If possible, please submit reservation to donmehle@ gmail.com or call 347-834-6726 so that enough materials can be prepared.
