God’s Great Love!
We are Sisters of the Neighborhood
Who We Are
profound love of God & neighbor without distinction
The Federation of the Sisters of Saint Joseph is a dynamic union of all the Sisters of Saint Joseph of the United States who claim a common origin in the foundation at Le Puy, France in 1650. This includes 3740 sisters, 2609 associates and 34 agrégées of 16 Congregations throughout the United States.
Face of the Charism
EMBRACING THE DEAR NEIGHBOR WITHOUT DISTINCTION
We are a national movement of people who live out the charism and spirituality of the Sisters of St Joseph. Our newly expanded membership now not only includes Sisters of St. Joseph but agrégées, associates, the St. Joseph Worker community, partners in mission, and other relationships described by member congregations. We respond to the movement of the Spirit to keep the flame of the charism alive. We embrace an all-inclusive and self-emptying love that nurtures unity among ourselves and the “dear neighbor” without distinction. Imbued with our rich heritage and attentive to the evolving needs of the world, we proclaim the Gospel message of unifying love thereby becoming a transforming and healing presence in the world.
