Associate Covenanting in the Western Region

Our joyful celebration of Associate Covenanting began with our cantor, Annie Welch CSJP-A, leading us in "The Summons." It was followed by a reading from Micah that has become a tradition during our Associate Covenanting ceremonies in the West.  

Micah 6:6a, 8:  With what shall I come…and bow before God most high?
You have been told what is good, and what God requires of you; only to do what is right, to love goodness, and to walk humbly with your God.

Jubilees in the Eastern Region

The 2016 jubilarians from the eastern region chose Spring, birds and butterflies as the theme for their day of celebration with family and friends in Englewood Cliffs, NJ. The weather forecast for that day was anything but a reflection of their theme - grey, damp, windy, slushy snow on and off all day! BUT the spirit of joy, gratitude, and celebration which permeated the liturgy and gathering afterwords overshadowed the mood of the weather!

Multum in Parvo - A Reflection on our tradition of remembrance

Lest We ForgetSister Ann Taylor, our Congregation Archivist, offers a reflection on Lest We Forget, our tradition of remembering the deceased members of our community. This is a long standing tradition which dates back to the 4th General Chapter in 1909 and the work of Mother Teresa Moran, our third Major Superior. The first collection of obituaries of deceased sisters was published in 1945, and for the past 70 years the regional archivists and scribes have maintained this tradition.
