At a ritual of transferal in Sacred Heart Chapel on August 7, 2021, the Sisters of St. Joseph installed their new President, Sister Tesa Fitzgerald. Sister Tesa retired from her position as Executive Director of Hour Children, Inc. on July 1, 2021 to take on the position of president of the Congregation. Her Leadership Council consists of four members: Sisters Elizabeth Hill, Maria Pascuzzi, Phyllis Esposito, and Karen Burke. After the ritual all in attendance were invited to refreshments in the Convent dining room.
The new team was elected by the General Chapter of the congregation in April and will be in office for the next five years.
