We are grateful for all who helped make Septemberfest 2023 a celebration of inclusivity and community. It was great to see so many of you celebrate our ministries and the ongoing mission of the Sisters of St. Joseph of "loving the dear neighbor without distinction." You inspire us as we continue to recognize and serve the needs of our communities throughout the Twin Cities and greater Minnesota.

Thank you for all you do. We could not do this important work without you.
