Helen Joann Mary A Celebration of Welcome was held at St. Nicholas of Tolentine Church for  JoAnn Squitieri on Sunday, January 5, 2014. Sister Helen Kearney, President and Sister Mary Walsh, Director of Formation are pictured here with JoAnn.

JoAnn was welcomed by the members of the community with whom she will live at St. Nicholas Convent and Sisters who have been significant in her discernment to join the Congregation. Many other Sisters of St. Joseph as well as Joann’s family and friends were present for the prayer service and the simple reception which followed it.

JoAnn is a retired business woman. She will be ministering at Sacred Heart Academy in Hempstead, NY as an assistant to the campus minister.

We welcome JoAnn enthusiatically and wish her well as she continues her process toward full membership in the congregation.
