Spirituality is an awareness that we long to reach a dimension beyond ourselves.

The Office of Spirituality

The knowledge we have of the universe and its vastness makes us humble before the Creative Mystery. Our spiritual search is rooted in the Gospel where we find the compassion of Jesus who was one with the poor, the suffering and the oppressed. There we find words that speak to us of God’s justice, forgiveness and inclusive love and impel us to work for a world of justice in which all will live in union with God and one another. Our search for the living God is not simply a personal quest but a contribution to the whole community of being.

2021 – The Year of Joseph

Pope Francis has proclaimed 2021 the “Year of Joseph.” We have been offering “Portrait of a Person of Joseph” videos throughout the year featuring our Sisters, our associates, and our partners in ministry. A person of Joseph is someone who embodies his attributes and virtues.

The Cosmic Walk

On October 4, 2020, the Cosmic Walk through our woodlands was opened.  The Cosmic Walk is an experiential description of the eons of time from the initial flaring forth of the Universe to the present day.  It is meant to be a spiritual experience of the wonder of creation and our place in the earth history.
