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.

Pope Francis has designated December 8, 2020- December 8, 2021, The Year of St. Joseph. This proclamation has stirred a renewed worldwide interest in who Joseph really was and is – this amazing person who played a central role in the Christian story yet never speaks a word in the entire four gospels. To celebrate The Year of St. Joseph we are gathering images from our sisters, associates, agrégées, and partners in mission. We hope this “virtual Joseph event” will inspire you to reflect on this quiet, courageous, compassionate dreamer who adjusted his plans over and over to be faithful to God’s unfolding design.

Sept. 25-Dec. 11: Finding God in All Things – a 4 part series for women 18-35

“Finding God in All Things” is core to the Spirituality of St. Ignatius of Loyola, which is also the Spirituality of the Sisters of Saint Joseph. It is rooted in our growing awareness that God can be found in every one, in every place and in everything. When we learn to pay more attention to God, we become more grateful and more deeply in love with our God. The Sisters of St. Joseph of Rochester are offering four virtual retreat opportunities to dive deep into Finding God in All Things… CLICK TITLE FOR DETAILS
