SSJ Spirituality

Our spirituality is a basic Gospel call to love of God and neighbor. It is characterized by a deep relationship with the persons of the Blessed Trinity and with Jesus, Mary and Joseph as a human community of love.

The distinguishing mark of our Congregation is simplicity, and we try to accept God’s invitation to grow both individually and together in humility and charity.

The spirit of the Congregation urges us to resist complacency, to nourish mutual healing and to foster reconciliation. It animates us to move always toward closer union with God and neighbor.

We share a rich spiritual heritage with other Sisters of Saint Joseph throughout the world, and work together to find inspiration for our 21st Century lives in the writings that are part of our heritage. We ponder the words of our early documents, hoping to become by God’s grace the Congregation of the great love of God.
