The Consensus Statement

a treasured summary statement of the Charism of the Sisters of St. Joseph.

Stimulated by the Holy Spirit of Love and receptive to those inspirations

The Sister of Saint Joseph moves always towards
profound love of God
love of neighbor without distinction
from whom she does not separate herself
for whom, in the following of Christ
she works in order to achieve unity
of neighbor with neighbor
and neighbor with God
directly in this apostolate
indirectly through works of charity
in humility – the spirit of the Incarnate Word
(Philippians 2:5-8)

In sincere charity (cordiale charité)
– the manner of Saint Joseph whose name she bears

In an Ignatian-Salesian climate: that is, with an
orientation towards excellence
(Le dépassement, le plus)
tempered by gentleness (douceur), peace, joy.
