Sister Joan Brincks and Associates Radie Roberts and Colleen Venter facilitate and nurture the spiritual connection between sisters and associates by fostering ongoing relationships through retreats, associate gatherings and service.

Radie is married to a fellow associate and has three children. She graduated from Clarke College (now Clarke University) with a degree in psychology and completed a year of service as a Holy Cross associate in Brockton, MA. She returned to Clarke to work as a campus minister for seven years and now divides her time between Seton School and the co-director position. Radie has been an associate for 10 years.

Colleen has been an active member of the Joyful Servants of the Light associate group for 11 years. She and her husband, Wayne, have been blessed with a beautiful family of five married children, 12 grandchildren and a goldendoodle, Maggie. Colleen has been involved in Catholic school and church ministries. She is a retired nurse and is grateful for the opportunity to serve as co-director.

She served as an elementary teacher for 29 years and holds a certificate in Healing Touch Spiritual Ministry and a certificate in the Lay Formation Program.
