A Presence That Unites

The sisters and staff at Mount Saint Joseph Motherhouse and Saint Joseph Villa gathered on Friday, January 20, 2017 to join in prayer for our nation. Together they prayed for our newly elected administration and for the healing of the divides that exist in our nation, our world and within our own hearts.

  • Be a unifying presence
  • Uphold the dignity of others
  • Engage in respectful conversation
  • Listen more
  • Be a positive voice of calm
  • Recognize and affirm acts of kindness
