On February 10, Candidate Satoko Sasano was given permission to become a novice by our Leader Sister Josephine Badali and the members of her Council.
On March 19, the day of the feast of St. Joseph in the year of consecrated life, Satoko became a novice at the evening prayer.
Please pray for her as she continues moving forward to a consecrated life offered to God and all people.

Fifth Sunday of Lent
Sharon Norton, Associate, gathered the thoughtful ideas of the Staten Island, NY Associates and Sisters on this Sunday’s readings (Jer. 31:31-34, Hebrews 5:7-9, John 12:20-33) for this reflection.
This past Wednesday evening, the SI Sisters and Associates considered the Fifth Sunday’s readings and Gospel and offer you some of our thoughts.
Jeremiah gives, what one of our sisters has called, a “foreshadowing of Jesus” as he describes how the first covenant birthed the second.
