On the upcoming feast of St. Joseph, the Daughters of Mary & Joseph and the Josephites inaugurate the official bicentennial of their foundation in the school chapel where our Founder, the young priest Constant van Crombrugghe was principal in Aalst, Belgium.
However, the DMJs and CJs in our archdiocese will gather for a less formal Eucharist and lunch this Monday, March 6, the actual date that the first couple of Sisters opened their little elementary school for poor girls, across the street of the Founder’s high school. This “family” gathering of sisters and fathers takes place at the Ventura Mission, thanks to the hospitality of the pastor, Fr. Tom Elewaut. Pray with us.
