Our three CSJP Novices, Sisters Juliana Ngozi Iwuagwa, Katrina Alton, and Sheena George have created a short video to tell the story of what attracted them to the Sisters of St. Joseph of Peace. The video also shares the story of our move to become One Congregation without provinces and to grow in nonviolence and care for creation as we continue to release our charism of peace through justice into the world.
