Where in the World is Our Provincial

Proverbs 16:9 says, “The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.”
Our Provincial, Brother Justin Howson, OH, was first called to witness Christ’s healing love when he was growing up in Australia. Today he resides in Hamilton, Ontario, and follows the example of Jesus and His Apostles to go out into the world. The Lord has led his journeys from Rome, to Canada, to the United States, to England, to the Phillipines, and beyond. And there are many adventures ahead! Please join Brother Justin as he shares his stories from the road through the lens of a Hospitaller Brother. We kindly ask that you also hold him in your prayers as he treks around the world as a pilgrim of peace, justice, and hospitality.

 


 
 
Brother Justin is currently in Hamilton, Ontario. He is moving furniture into Emmanuel House to welcome guests to the newly renovated facility. Emmanuel House has undergone extensive renovations and was temporarily located at St. Joseph’s West Campus during construction.  Emmanuel House is 10 bed residential hospice for individuals facing life-limiting illness. It is a place for guests to experience their end-of-life journey with dignity and comfort in a place that feels like home. 

Emmanuel House is a program provided by Good Shepherd Centres, a sponsored ministry of the Hospitaller Order of St. John of God-Province of the Good Shepherd in North America.

PF, are you in the states?

Congratulations

In 1997, Pope Saint John Paul II instituted a day of prayer for women and men in consecrated life. This celebration is attached to the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord on February 2nd. This Feast is also known as Candlemas Day; the day on which candles are blessed symbolizing Christ who is the light of the world. So too, those in consecrated life are called to reflect the light of Jesus Christ to all peoples.

Please pray for all those who have made commitments in the consecrated life.  May they continue to be inspired by Jesus Christ and respond generously to Gods gift of their vocation.

Happy Birthday to the Grandfather of the Province of the Good Shepherd. #HospitallerGivingHerzlichen Glückwunsch, Frater Rudolf!

Great job!

NBC10 Philadelphia
We asked you for the BEST rendition of the Eagles fight song, and we loved your responses! Birds sang it. Dogs barked it. Bands played it. Thousands of students and teachers from nursery school through high schools sang it -- and so did people in senior centers. But this video from Archbishop Damiano School, a school for students with special needs in Westville, NJ, might be our favorite of them all. GREAT job, and #FlyEaglesFly!
