Remembering Our Dead - November 2009

November has traditionally been the month for remembering our dead, and Sisters did this in various ways. 
The Josephite Retreat Centre held a special evening Service where a group of Sisters and friends joined in commemorating those who had died, particularly during 2009.

On all Souls’ Day, groups visited the graves of Sisters in local cemeteries around the region.

In Whanganui a gathering was held in the afternoon at the Heads Road Cemetery, where a number of the early Sisters’ graves are situated.   This group is near one of the gravesites where sprigs of rosemary were laid and a prayer blessing offered for the lives of these early Josephites.

In the early evening another group gathered to pray and reminiscence at the graves of Sisters buried in the Aramoho Cemetery.
