Mission and Charism
We are committed to nurturing community, making Christ present to the world through personal witness and living lives of service as stated in our mission statement:
Father Jean-Pierre Médaille, SJ and the first Sisters of St. Joseph were inspired by Jesus' invitation to love God and to love the “dear neighbour.” From this invitation flowed our charism: to be one with God, among ourselves and with all others.
Our spirituality finds expression in ministries to those in need and to all of creation. Our life together and our ministries reflect the love between the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and the Holy Family.
We nourish our spirituality through personal and communal prayer, celebration of the sacraments, regular retreats and other spiritual nourishment. Our call to life in community is a special gift of the Spirit: we believe that Christ is present among us and in each person.
