Associates – Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph


Associates are men and women who desire to live in union with God, with one another and with creation. In response to God’s great love and with mutual support, associates are deeply engaged in living the congregation’s mission of unity and inclusive love of God and the dear neighbor without distinction.
