SSJs Celebrating 162 Years with "Public Proclamation"

June 24, 2016

The Sisters of Saint Joseph of Rochester are proud to celebrate 162 years of service to our communities – the City of Rochester, Monroe County, the Diocese of Rochester and beyond. To commemorate the faith-filled and courageous contributions of our Sisters past and present, a “Public Proclamation” of the SSJ mission will be held on Friday, June 24 at 9 am outside St. Boniface Convent located at 314 Gregory Street in Rochester.

Mayor Lovely Warren and Marlene Bessette, President and CEO of the Catholic Family Center and member of the Anti-Poverty Initiative, will be present and invited to receive the SSJ commitment – a promise to continue working with, among and for those who have no voice. The Sisters, along with SSJ Associates and Collaborators, will share the experience via Facebook livestream at

Following the “Public Proclamation,” the Sisters will spend the rest of the morning doing a variety of service projects throughout the community. We are proud of the contributions our Sisters have made and continue to make in education, health care, criminal justice, social justice, theology and the arts in the City of Rochester, Monroe County, and the Diocese of Rochester.
