Welcome! Thank you for visiting the Sisters of Saint Joseph of Philadelphia.

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)
