The Sisters of St. Joseph live Jesus’ command that “All would be one” in a special way by extending “inclusive love, unity and reconciliation” to those with whom they come in contact.
On Valentine's Day, the entire Kearney Community was asked to write his or her name on a heart. The CSJ Student Leaders then assembled these hearts into a giant HEART that was placed on the wall just inside the courtyard door. In this way, each of us is reminded that we belong to a family and that no one in our “School Family” will ever feel left behind - or forgotten.
When Bishop Kearney was opened in 1961, the sisters created a welcoming atmosphere where the young women who came could feel that they were cared about, and where no one would be left out.
Today at Bishop Kearney, the Sisters of St. Joseph who still work in the school, work with the faculty to keep Kearney’s FAMILY SPIRIT alive and well. Those sisters include: S. Thomasine Stagnitta, S. Maureen McDermott, S. Mary Pat Hurley, S. Joan Dillon, S. Anne Mollica, S. Eileen Agoglia, S. Virginia Lake and S. Edyth Fitzsimmons.
