with Queen of the Valley Medical Center (QVMC), are pleased to invite
the public to an informal panel and discussion on Saturday afternoon,
June 18th from 2-4 p.m. The purpose of this event is to raise awareness
of the mission and ministries of the Sisters of St. Joseph, to provide
candid answers about their lifestyle and vocation, and to invite women
who might be considering religious life to expand their understanding
of this congregation.
The event will be take place at 2295 Big Ranch Road in Napa. Hors d’oeuvres
and drinks will be served. There is no cost, but advance registration

The panel will include representatives of the Sisters of St. Joseph of
Orange working in education, health care and other ministries throughout
California. Following a brief prayer and reflection, panelists will speak
on all aspects of their calling, their work and their community life.
Participants will then be invited to a dialogue on the sisters’
everyday life, and the challenges and joys that it presents. They may
raise questions on any aspect of the lifestyle and ministries, and the
presenters will offer a straightforward and candid response.
For women interested in further exploration, the event will offer information
on how they may further address their own questions and concerns –
about vocations in general, or about this particular congregation. For
the past 350 years, the Sisters of St. Joseph have been a driving force
