On Saturday, September 3, 2016, the Congregation of St. Joseph joyfully and officially welcomed Sarah Simmons (center) as a candidate for vowed membership in an Entrance Ceremony at our Nazareth Center in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Sister Christine Parks, CSJ, a member of our Leadership Team (left), welcomed and blessed Sarah as Sister Sandra Melanson, CSJ, Sarah’s candidate mentor, looked on.

A reception was held afterward for the many sisters, associates, family and friends in attendance, including fellow CSJ candidates Cami Taylor (center) and Jennifer Berridge (right).

Please join us in welcoming Sarah and all of our candidates for religious life on our FaceBook page today!
