Sister Joan Derry
May 4, 2021
Dear St Joseph’s Family,
Please join us this Sunday, May 9th, at our 11AM Mass for a very special service honoring Sister Joan Derry.
Sister Joan will be moving from the Santa Cruz area to begin residing with her fellow Sisters of the Holy Family at their Mother House in Alameda, California.
After over 60 years of Ministerial and Religious Education service to Parish communities, Sister Joan will be retiring to the Mothers House in mid-May.
Our own St. Joseph’s community was blessed to have Sr. Joan as the Catechetical leader of our RCIA Program, RCIC Program, and our Religious Education programs.
Her dedication and service to individuals, families and children of our parish has left an indelible mark on their spiritual growth and understanding of our Catholic faith. We are grateful to her for all she has given to us.
Please join us this Sunday at 11am as we bid her fond farewell and send her home to her Mother House with blessings, gratitude, and our love from her St Joseph’s faith family.
God's Richest Blessings,
Father Wayne Dawson, Pastor
