Sisters of St. Joseph of Boston Grieve
and Cry out Against Racism
On Sunday, June 7, the Sisters of St. Joseph of Boston, associates, agrégées, and friends gathered at the CSJ Motherhouse and joined all who grieve and cry out against racism in all its forms. At this moment, heartbreak, frustration, fear, and outrage are but a few of the disquieting emotions resulting from the fatal arrest of George Floyd of Minneapolis. Armed with colorful heart-felt signs, the group stood in solidarity for peace and equality. Click here to read the media statement about the event;

Mary Ellen O’Connell, CSJ, provided an overview of activities from associates amid the Covid-19 outbreak. Sandra Selvarajah, CSJA, helped construct 200 masks with others. The masks were distributed to immigrant high school students from Cambridge and Somerville. These students are English language learners, and many are essential workers who continue to work during the pandemic. Sandra is also working all day on the computer, via Zoom, with Walnut Park Montessori students. Margaret Lelakes, CSJA, is also very involved with making masks, and Colleen King, CSJA, has an on-line website Math Playground that is very busy at this time of the pandemic.
