of all the Sisters of Saint Joseph of the United States who claim
a common origin in the foundation at LePuy, France, in the mid-seventeenth
Together we strive to embody a vision of all people united in one
earth community of love, unity and reconciliation. We do this through
collaborative programs, interaction, prayer and ministry. In our
conflicted 21st century world, the Sisters of Saint Joseph seek
to bring our traditions and vision to life in a way that speaks
to our contemporary society and is a positive influence for change.
The basic desire of the Sisters of Saint Joseph is to reflect a
profound love of God and neighbor without distinction. Our
mission is to live and work inclusively so that all may be one.

FOR THE FUTURE
the past year the Sisters of St. Joseph of Boston have engaged
with a consultant company to study the organizational structure
and roles needed at and best suited for St. Joseph Retreat
Center. As a result of this study, the center will now have
a Program Director, who oversees all dimensions of program
planning and implementation, and an Executive Director, who
oversees all aspects of the facility, finances, etc. We hope
this new structure will provide for the sustainability of
this deeply blessed and desperately needed ministry well into
of the new role descriptions are listed here for your consideration
and discernment: Executive Director and Administrative Assistant
to the Program Director. Other roles will be forthcoming soon.
If you feel called to apply for one of these new ministries,
