National Vocations Awareness Week begins on Sunday, November 2, and we have a special opportunity to recognize vocations in our community. Two Sisters of St. Joseph are celebrating jubilees this year. Sr. Clarise Winter, CSJ joined the sisters 75 years ago, and Sr. Martin McEntee, CSJ is celebrating 60 years with the sisters.
Please join the sisters’ families as they and the parish recognize these significant milestones in their vocations. Through their ministry to the Church and to our community, Sr. Clarise and Sr. Martin have touched many lives and have shared God’s love through education and healthcare. May God continue to bless them and bless others through them. Please continue to pray that all of us will listen to and heed God’s call in our lives.
