Josephites will be very visible at the national Proclaim 2012 conference organised for the Year of Grace at The Concourse, Chatswood, Sydney, 9-11 August.
The Sisters and other Josephites will have a booth there and warmly invite visitors to come and speak with them about the “Josephite Spiritual Homeland”. We know that many people now resonate with the Josephite charism. Some may want to explore options for commitment in the spirit of Mary MacKillop. Well imagine the Josephite Spiritual Homeland as the bed of a braided river with many streams sharing the riverbed but each with a different course. This is an image of the different pathways of Josephite commitment that are available at this time. One pathway is to become a Sister of St Joseph and a member of the Congregation; another is to become affiliated with the Congregation and to take private vows; and a third is to become affiliated with the Congregation and to become a Covenant Josephite.
Might God be calling you to explore one of these pathways to commitment? Drop by the booth and you will be surprised and delighted to hear of the new possibilities that are emerging in Josephite life that could energise your life for mission and enrich others.
