Read Along With the Novices

 

The Compassionate Connection

"The Compassion Connection: Recovering Our Original Oneness"

At the beginning of September 2018, the Novices were asked to read "The Compassion Connection: Recovering Our Original Oneness" by Sister of St. Joseph Sr. Cathy Nerney (Chestnut Hill). Sr. Cathy's new book is hot off the presses — it was released in August 23, 2018. While the book will be used throughout the year, Part 3 of the book is what our novices will be concentrating on at this time.

We're asking our sisters throughout the Federation to please "Read Along with our Novices" and share their insights below utilizing the comments section.
