Loving God and neighbor without distinction: A pontifical institute of women religious of the Roman Catholic Church


Meet the seven Sisters marking Jubilees this year

Each January, we introduce our Jubilarians —- the remarkable women we celebrate on the noteworthy anniversaries of the date they were received as novices into the Sisters of St. Joseph of Concordia.

In 2017, we honor seven sisters who together represent 450 years of love of God and service to the neighbor.

As these special women prepared to begin their Jubilee year, we asked each one to write a short reflection that would be an answer to this question:

As you look back on your years as a Sister of St. Joseph of Concordia, is there a story about an experience, incident or event that best captures what your religious life has meant to you?

To learn more about them, and read their response, click on each name below:
