Commitment Statements

I, Lucy Allen, desire to make this commitment to the Sisters of St. Joseph and their Associates because I feel called to take part and share in spreading the charism of the Sisters of St. Joseph.  I commit to helping and serving the dear neighbor for the greater good so that I can enhance and enrich lives to make a difference for the greater good of all.  I hope that I will enable followers to join me in spreading the wonderful charism of the Sisters of St. Joseph.I

I, Cheryl Baugh, desire to make this commitment to the Sisters of St. Joseph and their Associates in a distinct answer to God’s call.  I commit to living out the charism by surrendering my will for God’s good, perfect and pleasing will. 

I, Dennis Golden, desire to make this commitment to the Sisters of St. Joseph and their Associates in order to use my God-given abilities to help others in this life and to seek eternal salvation.  For me this means an increased commitment to faith, family, friends and Fontbonne.  It also means a commitment to the CSJ charism and discernment that leads to action and right relationships with self, every kind of neighbor, nature and God.  If not all of this and more - what else matters?  Nothing else - therefore I am making this commitment. 

I, Kate Mennes, desire to make this commitment to the Sisters of St. Joseph and their Associates because I want to contribute to the charism in the spirit of love and acceptance.  I hope to live a life guided by reconciliation - deepening my relationship with God and others.  I will embrace this commitment by listening for God’s direction in order to serve the dear neighbor and seeking unity in all my relationships. 

I, Mary Kay Sullivan, desire to make this commitment to the Sisters of St. Joseph and their Associates to begin a new chapter in my life, to give and serve the dear neighbor through my love of God and with the love of my family.
