Celebrate Service

In the late summer of 1918, near the end of the Great War (World War I), what was then called “the Spanish flu,” arrived at the shores of Boston.  It immediately spread throughout the area, challenging those who are now called “first responders.”  Responding to a call by Cardinal O’Connell, the Sisters—school principals and superiors, teachers, those with household duties—collaborated with local groups, such as the St. Vincent DePaul society, as well as other volunteers to bring food and care to those will with the flu.  Well-received by their neighbors and praised for volunteering, they went back to everyday life when the extraordinary need was over.

The U.S. Federation of the Sisters of St. Joseph Opposes the Trump Administration’s Affordable Clean Energy Rule

August 24, 2018: We, the U. S. Federation of the Sisters of St. Joseph, compelled by the Gospel and by our heritage to be responsive to the “dear neighbor” without distinction, are concerned for all of God’s creation and our sisters and brothers everywhere.
