Face of the Charism


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.
