In Alaska on Little Diomede Island — caring for the dear neighbor
Welcome! Thank you for visiting the Sisters of Saint Joseph of Philadelphia.
We are a community of approximately 900 women religious. Originally founded in 1650 in LePuy, France, the Sisters of Saint Joseph came to Philadelphia in 1847.
Through our many ministries, including education, social services, and parish ministry, “we live and work so that all people may be united with God and with one another“. (Mission Statement of the Sisters of Saint Joseph)
