“My Soul Proclaims
the Greatness of the Lord!”

   
Sister Joseph, you were born with a missionary heart open wide to the world and your story has taken you to many places.  Searching to know and do God’s Holy Will and serving in response to the Mission entrusted to the Sisters of St. Joseph of Cluny, you have journeyed a long time and a long way from the depression years in Lawn, Newfoundland. Your 100 years have been a gift and blessing for all the world. 
  
Congratulations on the occasion of your 100th Birthday.  God Bless You!
