Message from the staff

The mission of The Sophia Center for Spirituality is to serve as a resource for all people and faith communities seeking to deepen their relationship with God. Christian and ecumenical in orientation and founded on the principles of openness and hospitality, the center is a place of welcome for all people seeking support on their spiritual journey. Of special note will be programs based on the contemplative dimensions of Christianity rooted in the traditions of both East and West. The center will offer a diverse menu of services in the areas of faith and spirituality for residents of the Southern Tier and central New York.

Beloved friends of the Sophia Center,

It is with heavy hearts that we share the news with you of Sr. Lois Barton's passing today following complications from a swimming accident on Cape Cod last week.

We are stunned, saddened, and yet at the same time filled with abundant gratitude that she was part of our lives. Lois embodied the shining spirit of the Sophia Center, using her wisdom as a beacon to guide so many to contemplative meditation and opening her empathetic heart to welcome all faith communities to join the programs she directed. Teaching was a vocation that she shared enthusiastically with students from high school to wisdom school.

Your prayers for Lois' family, her Sisters of St. Joseph community—especially Sr. Liz, Sr. Paula and Sr. Susan with whom she resided in Windsor, and her coworkers are appreciated deeply at this time.

Ar dheis Dé go raibh a h-anam dilis. ~ May her sweet soul be at God's right hand.
