A Message from the Sisters-
Thank You! March 19, St. Joseph’s Day, holds a special place in all of our hearts. It has always been a our special feast day to reflect on our patron, Saint Joseph. As teachers in Hill, we hoped to instill in our students a special love for the father of Jesus. Last night, we saw our hopes turned to reality.
In the past few years, a tradition has taken shape thanks to our generous, kind, and loving group of current Hill families, Hill graduates, Lay Associates and Junior Associates.
Our celebration began with a beautiful Mass and the Associates Commitment Renewal. Special thanks to Sister Denise for coordinating all the elements of the Mass and for organizing and preparing the school auditorium. Although we could not hold this special occasion in our beloved chapel, Sister Denise transformed the gym into a beautiful setting for all of the Sisters and our guests to enjoy. Sister Josita gathered a large group of Associates to this year’s ceremony. Each Associate promises to carry out the charism of the Daughters of Divine Charity in their own lives by “Making God’s Love Visible” to all they touch.
Following Mass, nearly 100 guests joined the Sisters for a remarkable dinner. Each family added a delightful dish to our potluck dinner. From tomato and mozzarella and antipasto, fresh baked rolls and St. Joseph’s bread, to penne vodka and chicken marsala, to honey baked ham and mashed potatoes, all the way to the dessert table of cookies, cakes, scones and of course, St. Joseph’s Pasties, every bite tasted even more delicious knowing they were made to be shared with people who truly love Saint Joseph, the Sisters and Hill.
