The Sisters of Saint Joseph of Philadelphia invite women and men, 18 or older, of diverse backgrounds, to join us in responding to the Gospel call of unity.

You may wish to explore becoming an Associate if …
You are seeking to engage in a deeper, more intentional spiritual practice with others on the faith journey.
You are looking for a faith community with which to pray, minister and celebrate God’s presence in life.
You desire to further social justice – particularly on behalf of the poor marginalized and vulnerable.
You realize that life has a deeper meaning when lived in the context of reflection, shared experiences and spirituality.

While Associates may already be bonded to the Sisters of Saint Joseph through family, friendship or ministry, sharing in the charism and mission of the Sisters of Saint Joseph deepens these relationships. Through this relationship, associates and sisters experience mutual support in responding to the call to live out the mission of the Sisters of Saint Joseph — “We Live And Work So That All People May Be United With God And With One Another.”
