For St. Joseph

A Sister of St. Joseph outside St. Michael's Cathedral
This year Sister is celebrating her golden jubilee in la vie consacrée. That is a lifetime of poverty, chastity, and obedience in service of God and neighbour.  Thank you, Sister.

The Sisters of St. Joseph founded Toronto’s Food Bank. These days they care for the poor and disabled, visit the lonely, provide transitional housing to vulnerable woman, and do a good many other worthy and unglamorous  things for people.

Is this your vocation?  Go here.  You won't get an awesome habit but you WILL get a pretty good shot at personal holiness, community life, and quiet service.  Oh...and if you're really, really lucky, you'll get 50 years espoused to The Most High.
