Josephite Affiliates

Josephite Affiliates

The Josephite Affiliates group continues the vision of connecting with people who resonate with the values and characteristics of Josephite Spirituality, the Josephite Affiliates Core-Group co-ordinates these activities. Since 2008 we have welcomed a number of new members as Virginia Hillgrove and Kitty Moore have both moved from Whanganui. Marie Skidmore rsj, Ann Lunny, Irene Back and Helen Dougherty join Liz Hickey rsj and Adrienne Smith to make up the current core-group.  Virginia and Kitty have both become involved with the Josephite Associate communities in their areas. We welcome contact from people in other places who are conscious of sharing Josephite values or are simply interested in finding out a bit more about Josephite Spirituality.

Currently we are involved in a number of initiatives:

  • Preparation of four liturgies on the Josephite Retreat Centre Programme,
  • Developing opportunities for people to explore Josephite Spirituality.
  • Co-ordinating social occasions with the wider Affiliates/Friends group.
  • Presenting workshops and spirituality days in other areas of the Diocese by invitation.
  • Developing the Being Josephite link on the Sisters of St Joseph website.
  • Gathering once a year with the Central Josephite Associates Leadership team to look at ways we can work together more closely.
  • Being involved in other Josephite projects as required.
