Wisdom Sisters Respond to Questions for Chapter Reflection


In preparation for our Congregational Chapter 2013, held in Los Angeles, CA, from July 17-July 31, each province (Los Angeles, Albany, St. Louis and St. Paul) and each vice province (Hawaii and Peru) identified some sisters as “Wisdom Sisters.” The task of the Wisdom Sisters was to respond to the following questions:

“As you reflect on your years as a young member of the community, what did you NEVER expect to be experiencing/living as a Sister of St. Joseph today?  What gives you joy and sustains you?”

We are delighted to present for you the responses of some of our Albany-Province Wisdom Sisters which were used in part of the prayer and reflection at Chapter!
