we hope to be women and men of unifying love,
freeing others to be themselves in Christ.

Together, we contribute to a world desperately
in need of unity.
We are united in this mission with
Sisters of St. Joseph and lay partners
all over the world.

11/23 U.S. Federation of the Sisters of St. Joseph Decries Colorado Shooting

The U.S. Federation of the Sisters of St. Joseph decries the homophobic and transphobic mass shooting at Club Q, an LGBTQ+ nightclub in Colorado Springs on November 19. We grieve for the five individuals who were killed and the 18 people injured in a space known for sanctuary and celebration, and on the cusp of the Transgender Day of Remembrance on November 20.

As vowed women religious, associates, agrégées, St. Joseph Workers, and partners in mission who share this charism of unifying love, we name that violent hate crimes do not happen in isolation. Language, beliefs, and practices that condemn, reject, target, or blame LGBTQ+ people must be explicitly rejected, particularly by religious leaders and churches.

11/11 Join in Our Celebration of 150 Years in Boston

Did you know that this year marks the 150th anniversary of presence and service of the Sisters of St. Joseph among the people of Boston? Our 150 years in Boston is a celebration of and for all who have been a part of this journey. We celebrate founders whose original impulse of unifying love brings us to this day as well as those who continue this impulse as it flares among and beyond us.
