Our RHSJ spiritual family increases in Dominican Republic

I greet you in this love of Christ which makes us free. And I share with you the joy of seeing our spiritual family grow. On this feast of our patron Saint Joseph, we also celebrated the new commitment of seven people who are now officially part of the spiritual family of the Religious Hospitallers of Saint Joseph, in addition to the two groups of Associates. Seventeen renewed their commitment for three years.
The ceremony took place within the solemn Eucharistic celebration in honour of Saint Joseph, who is also the patron of our parish San José de Ocoa. Father Pascal Reynoso, a guest priest, was the presider. It should also be mentioned that Argentina Pujols, arhsj, who was to renew her promise with this group died two days before, after a fierce fight with cancer. So we remembered her during Mass and prayed for her and her family, especially for her husband, Luis Alfredo Reyes, who is also a RHSJ Associate.
Then accompanied by the municipal band, we participated in a small procession with the image of Saint Joseph, walking through four streets of the village. We went back to our church to conclude the celebration.
Let us therefore continue with joy to entrust our spiritual family to the loving intercession of Saint Joseph.
In union of hearts in prayer,
Elizabeth Pujols, rhsj
