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.

Our first virtual Living the Dream event was a huge success! Thank you to all who participated in this event. Because of YOU and a very, very hardworking committee, we were able to raise funds to support our retired sisters and our ongoing Congregation Ministries! Click through and enjoy the show with our host Karen Holmes Ward, WCVB TV 5, who guided us through the evening. Meet our “Dear Neighbor Award” honorees, Mary Ann Jordan and Hon. Regina Quinlan Doherty. Be sure to watch through to the end when the evening concludes with a number of our sisters singing “Sancte Joseph” which has become a tradition for this event.

Sisters of St. Joseph join with others in condemning racism and sexism in all their harmful forms — whether the violent acts of white supremacists and misogynists or the daily acts of hate and discrimination that diminish us all. We vow to use our Gospel Charism and mission of unifying love for the healing and transformation of the world to commit ourselves to cleanse our hearts and rid our land of these twin evils. — CLICK TITLE or GRAPHIC TO READ MORE

Our Ministries

We fulfill our mission through a diversity of ministries inspired by the ever-changing needs of the Church and the world; we build right relationships and community where we live and work.

These ministries address the interconnectedness of housing, literacy, justice and peace, education, healthcare and more. They embrace our core values of gracious hospitality, love and service of the dear neighbor without distinction, peaceful resolution of conflict, and care for all God’s creation.
