CSJ Associates renew commitments, welcome candidates

As part of the annual CSJ Associates Retreat, three new associates made their first commitment Saturday while other Associates renewed their commitment to the Sisters of St. Joseph of Concordia. The spring weekend retreat took place April 6-8 at Manna House of Prayer in Concordia.

The 7 p.m. Saturday commitment ceremony was the highlight of a weekend filled with prayer and fellowship. The retreat concluded with Mass on Sunday morning at the Nazareth Motherhouse and dinner with the Sisters.

A CSJ Associate is a Christian adult who is committed to Gospel values, feels drawn by the charism, spirituality and mission of the Sisters of St. Joseph, desires to deepen one’s spiritual life, is willing to give oneself in service to the “dear neighbor” and is committed to building community.

CSJ Associates are men and women from all ages and all walks of life. They meet regularly for prayer and sharing either in groups or one-on-one.

CSJ Associates renewing their commitment at the retreat were:
Susan LeDuc, Janice Carroll, Catherine Seitz, Myrna Shelton, Gerry Parker, Bill Riordan, Nancy Welsh, Rosalita Flax, Susan Riordan, Stephanie Hudson, Jennifer Spangler and Amber Charbonneau.
New candidates are Mary Lee Kenworthy, Aurora, Kan., Dawn Knipp, Bogue, Kan., and Mary Denise Carleton, Concordia.
