Volunteer Opportunity...

The Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph has a volunteer opportunity for a few students. The convent is a very lovely place for students to try out their library skills. The Sisters need help in weeding their collection.

The convent also offers an archives bursary which can be viewed on their website.
