From July 22-25, Gina Christel, Assistant Principal of Sacred Heart Academy, participated in the Spirits on Fire Program in Chicago. This year long formation program is designed for lay leaders in the sponsored ministries of the Sisters of St. Joseph. Thirty-one persons from across the United States traveled to the Carmelite Spiritual Center for Cohort 4’s immersion experience in the CSSJ Mission and Charism. Sister Angela Gannon, CSJ, Coordinator for Sponsored Educational Ministries, is on the Planning Committee for this initiative. Thus far, more than 100 individuals have participated in this unique lay formation experience.
