Statement of Support for Jewish Community

March 7, 2017

The Sisters of Saint Joseph of Rochester express care, concern and support for all in the Jewish community, indeed for the entire Rochester community in the wake of the recent acts of hatred against our Jewish friends and neighbors.
 
 It is a great sadness to us that so many now live in fear. The belief that all humanity is to be revered is a basic tenet of our faith.
 
We promise our prayerful support moving forward for peace building, healing and reconciliation during these frightening and dangerous times.
 
The Sisters of Saint Joseph of Rochester is a community of Roman Catholic women religious. Serving our neighbors, all people no matter who they are or where they find themselves is our mission. We serve in 12 counties of the Diocese of Rochester, rural Alabama and Brazil.
