...instruments of mercy in the hand of God...

DMJ LOGO (Copy)In preparation for our Bicentenary which begins in March 2017, a reflection on a theme from our Founder’s writings will be published on this page each month (perhaps even more frequently) These reflections will be written by our sisters associates or our Josephite brothers and we hope they will encourage us to live our charism more deeply in today’s world. Please join us in our journey.
