Resources for Mission Effectiveness Facilitators

“Wouldn’t it be wonderful if as we lived a radical response to the Gospel, people asked us that question:  What in the name of all that’s good and holy are you doing?  And our response would be, ‘I am sowing the seeds of the Charism of the Sisters of Saint Joseph, seeds that I have planted deep in my heart.’ The issues and concerns of our day, immigration, human trafficking, poverty, violence, injustices of any kind cry out to us for reconciling love.” 
Maureen Doherty, CSJ

Mission Effectiveness is the level of achievement of the desired outcomes of activities and initiatives in the sponsored ministry which further the local mission and the mission and charism of the Sisters of Saint Joseph.
The Mission Effectiveness Facilitator (MEF) is a person(s) in each ministry appointed by the Administrator to model and promote the values of the Sisters in the actions, programs and activities of the ministry with a view to creating the CSJ environment. The Director of Mission Effectiveness (DME) meets several times a year with the local ministry Mission Effectiveness Facilitators.

Please consult the 2015-2016 MEF Meeting Calendar for details about upcoming meetings between the Mission Effectiveness Facilitators and the Director of Mission Effectiveness.
