"What's it like to be a Sister of St. Joseph?"

Sister Kathleen Carr, SSJ, Vocations Director

and General Superior

of the Sisters of St. Joseph of St. Augustine, FL        


As anyone who has entered religious life knows, every one of us is always in the state of "becoming." As a Sister of St. Joseph our character is continually being shaped and honed. During and following the various phases of development leading up to final vows, we have all been works in progress--and continue to be each day of our lives. We find strength, support, comfort and a sense of belonging within the community. We invite you to learn about the process we go through in becoming a Sister of St. Joseph, and also to get a glimpse of the different paths some of the Sisters in our community have taken to follow the Way.

Foundational Values

Our spiritual formation process is one of obediently listening for the voice of God. Sisters who work with our spiritual formation process will help each woman discern what God is saying in her and in the community. We believe that each of us, Inquirers and Sisters, are called to give and receive from each other in love, in justice and in charity. We model a life of personal responsibility, balanced with interdependence, and look for that model within Inquirers.
