Consensus Statement of the Sisters of St. Joseph

Stimulated by the Holy Spirit of Love and receptive to the Spirit’s inspirations,
the Sister of St. Joseph moves always towards
profound love of God and
love of neighbor without distinction
from whom she does not separate herself
and for whom, in the following of Christ,
she works in order to achieve unity
of neighbor with neighbor
and neighbor with God
directly in this apostolate
and indirectly through works of charity:
in humility-the spirit of the Incarnate Word;
in sincere charity-the manner of St. Joseph whose name she bears;
in an Ignatian-Salesian climate: that is, with an orientation toward excellence,
tempered by gentleness, peace, joy.
