Who We Are…
Celebrating 150 years of service in the community, the Sisters of St. Joseph of Boston are ordinary women from all walks of life.
We are sisters, associates, agregees and partners on a mission. In all we are and do, 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. Joesph and lay partners all over the world.
