Associate Program

The Associate Program is open to any sincere person who desires to share in the spirit and values of the Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph. The program offers an opportunity to be a part of a faith community that seeks to grow as the “Body of Christ.” Associates are spiritual companions and co-workers with the Sisters while continuing their daily lives. Joining to promote the mission, Associates help to provide spiritual and earthly needs of the dear neighbor.


As Spiritual Companions, Associates:

  • Share opportunities for spiritual and personal enrichment through retreats, days of recollection and community celebration.
  • Join the Sisters in prayer life.
  • Learn more about our Catholic faith and participate in the charism of the Sisters of St. Joseph (mission and values)
  • Join in the care and concern for the dear neighbor.

As Co-workers with the Sisters, Associates:

  • Actively engage in promoting vocations
  • Participate in fund raising efforts that sustain the mission
  • Promote congregational social justice issues
  • Help the Sisters in their ministries
  • Volunteer in service to the retired Sisters.

Associates do not take public vows; do not live in community or a convent; do not have a voice in governance or any financial obligations.
