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.

Jackson Savoy, a senior at Saint Joseph Preparatory High School, shares his CSJ Boston story. Love and service of the Dear Neighbor without Distinction has been a core value of the Sisters of St. Joseph since the beginning. During this autumn season we celebrate CSJ heritage moments on October 2 [Boston Founders’ Day in 1873] and October 15 [LePuy, France, Founders’ Day in 1650]. In preparation for these events, we asked some of our sisters, associates, agrégées, and partners in mission to tell how they live this core value.

November, 2020: The U.S. Federation of the Sisters of St. Joseph Congratulates the President-Elect and Recommits to Building God’s Beloved Community

Our Gospel mandate as Sisters of St. Joseph is to unite neighbor to neighbor and neighbor to God. Now is the time to make space in our hearts and our communities for the needs and concerns of all God’s people, the undocumented mother, the Midwest farmer, the unemployed steelworker, the suburban businesswoman, and the children and elders consigned to live in poverty. It is time to tear down the walls — real or imagined — which divide us by gender, race, class, geography, lifestyle, ideology, political party, and religious belief and to make room in our body politic for all who have been disaffected, disenfranchised, and discarded — CLICK TITLE TO READ MORE

Nov 10: From Our Archives: Ode to the Napkin Ring!

Gathering around a table to share a meal is a very human act found throughout time. One tool of the tradition, created in the 1800s, is the napkin ring. Its circular shape reminds us of the community – no matter how large or small – gathered together. How can we be spiritually present to our circles of family and friends in renewed ways this Thanksgiving? Click title to read more.
