Who We Are…

Celebrating more than 145 years of service in the community, the Sisters of St. Joseph of Boston are ordinary women from all walks of life.

We work for unity and reconciliation where there is brokenness, helping people become whole and holy, individually and together. Also known as the Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph (CSJ), we are a Catholic community with over 500 women who are sisters, associates, agregees and volunteers sharing in Christ’s mission of unifying love.

“The people who walked in darkness
have seen a great light; 
Upon those who lived in a land of gloom 
a light has shone. 
For a child is born to us, a son is given to us; 
upon his shoulder dominion rests. 

They name him Wonder-Counselor, God-Hero,
Father-Forever, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9

During the Christmas season, we would like to recognize and share Christmas artwork from the late Sister Nanine Tuller of the Sisters of Saint Joseph of Boston. Christmas scenes are composed entirely of artwork by Nanine Tuller, CSJ using multiple mediums. Special thanks to our CSJ Boston Archivist Katie McNally.
