Administrative history

The tertianship program delivered by the Sisters of St. Joseph of London was conducted in the summers of 1958, 1960, 1963 and 1966 at Holy Rosary Convent in Windsor, Ontario. The tertianship program was a month-long program and a Sister could only take part in it one time. The tertianship was an opportunity for professed Sisters to deepen their spiritual and religious vows through meditation, self-evaluation, reflection, and study. They also studied what Pope John XXIII had written in his encyclical on mercy. After Bishop Carter called a synod on Vatican II, tertianships ended. Mother Julia assumed leadership of the Sisters of St. Joseph of London five years prior to the Second Vatican Council, and was very involved in the tertianship process.

Scope and content

This sub-series contains notes and scholarship about tertianship. Included is the publication To Nuns on the Imitation of Christ, a Sponsa Christi pamphlet, notes written by Sister Mary Angela [Flaherty?] for the 1966 tertianship event, and a list of sisters who attended the 1963 tertianship event. There are also photographs of tertianship classes and a crucifix inscribed on the back with “Tertianship ’58. Pray for JWE CSB,” a reference to Basilian priest James William (Jim) Embser (1905-1984). Father Embser obtained both his B.A. (1928) and M.A. (1942) at the University of Western Ontario. He was ordained in 1931, and taught Latin for 52 years at many different schools in Detroit, Houston, and Rochester. He also served as principal at several schools, and councilor for his community. His final position was at the University of St. Thomas in Houston, where he gave retreats to Sisters and lay groups, and served on the local council for his community for ten years.
