August 29 & 30 at all Masses at Sacred Heart and Saint Gerard Mission Church.

We are grateful to two Sisters of Saint Joseph of St. Augustine, Sr. Kathleen Power and Sr. Josephine Marie Melican, who have accepted our invitation to speak at all Masses for the weekend to explain the lay Associates of the SSJ ; who we are, what we do, who can join and what is the process.

Sister Kathleen will present a basic understanding of the call to religious life in the light of Pope Francis’ dedication of this year to the Consecrated Life.

She will issue an invitation to prayerfully consider becoming a lay associate of the Sisters’ of St. Joseph to all men and women of our parish.

And, finally, she will invite all parishioners to gather with them after Mass in our social hall for questions/answers and discussion.

These two Sisters are very near and dear to us at Sacred Heart as they facilitate our Girls Vocation Club monthly.

We hope that everyone will consider joining the Sisters after each Mass to gain knowledge of the Associate program and visit with Sr. Kathleen and Sr. Josephine Marie.
