Join Us

As we live our mission of peace,
we continue to be enriched
by the hope shared among us
and brought to us by new members
and by the lives of those who walk and work with us.
(Constitution 78)

We are the Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Peace (CSJP) — an international religious community of vowed women religious and women and men Associates.

Our charism of peace challenges us to prophetic risk so that God's reign might be more fully realized. Sisters and Associates collaborate with others working for justice and peace.

Our ministries are many and varied: healthcare, education, social work, parish ministry, counseling, retreat work and spiritual direction, pastoral care, cultural ministry, affordable housing, political advocacy, care of Earth and ministry with those who are marginalized and powerless.

Community life sustains us in ministry. Likewise ministry enlivens and enriches our life in community. Recognizing gospel peace as both gift and task, we believe that prayer is fundamental to our life. We rely on the love and fidelity of God to lead us into the way of peace.

We invite you to learn more about joining our mission of peace through justice as a vowed Sister or through Associate covenant.

"So yes, we are forever beginning, and the best we can do is be very grateful that each new beginning is one more chance to grow. "
