Canonical Visitation 2024

What is Canonical Visitation? 

A Canonical Visit is a visitation by a Religious Brother representing the International Leadership of the Hospitaller Order of Saint John of God to the local provinces of the Order and their missions. Its main purpose is to shepherd the flock through dialogue, fellowship, and solidarity. The visitation serves as an invitation for both the Local Hospitaller Brothers and the Co-workers of the Brothers to renew their commitment to the mission, while also encouraging and inviting them to safeguard and cultivate the values of Hospitality, Quality, Respect, Responsibility, and Spirituality.

This week we were honored to welcome Brother Joseph Smith during the Hospitaller Order of St. John of God's Canonical Visitation! Brother Joseph had the opportunity see the amazing things that happen in Westville, New Jersey every day! He was able to tour our campus, meet our clients and coworkers and so much more!
