Sisters of St. Joseph (S.S.J. & C.S.J.)—Federa-
tion Does loving God and neighbor without distinc-
tion stir your heart and energize you for living in
today’s world? In 1650, six ordinary women came
together to share their gift of God’s love. They prayed
daily, lived simply in community and responded to
the needs of their time. Over 360 years later, this
same mission continues in over 50 countries world-
wide. We are vowed religious women from all walks
of life who share the mission of Jesus, “that all may be
one.” We do this by praying together, living in com-
munity, and responding to the needs of our time. Our
mission calls us to work toward union of God and
neighbor without distinction. With our Associates,
Agrégées, and Volunteers, we respond to the needs
of our Church and world with compassion, creativity,
and courage by using our individual and collective
gifts in varied ways. Live the challenge of the Gospel
with us! For more information, please visit www.css-

Sisters of St. Joseph of Peace
(C.S.J.P.) “We want brave, noble, large-minded, and courageous souls.” Those
attributes, written by Founder, Mother
Clare in 1887, are among those we seek in new
members today as our Congregation recommits to
Jesus´ way of radical hospitality. Contemplative
discernment and our charism of peace through justice compel us to expand and create new ministries
not just “for” but “with” people who’ve been pushed
to the margins. Called to carry on the mission of
Jesus, we practice hospitality, nonviolence, and care
for creation. Recalling Jesus´ identification with the
prophetic tradition, we develop a critical, sensitive
conscience regarding religious, social, cultural, economic, and political realities. Prayer is fundamental
to our life. Our presence to one another in community enables, sustains, and challenges us to be responsive to our mission. Our sisters and associates
minister in education, healthcare, social justice,
parish ministry, spiritual direction, and peace ministry in the U.S., U.K., and Haiti. Vocation Contact:

Sisters of St. Rita (O.S.A.) The Sisters of St. Rita
are an active/contemplative Augustinian Com-
munity, following the Rule of St. Augustine and the
example of St. Rita of Cascia, our Patroness. Like
St. Rita we serve people in love, peace, and recon-
ciliation. Our ministries include: healthcare, family
care, and pastoral care of the sick, elderly, and dy-
ing, especially working with people with dementia
and Alzheimer´s. Catechism, parish, and prison
ministries, as well as serving the poor are part of
our volunteer outreach. We welcome women who
have the desire to live a common life with us and
committing themselves to living the three evan-
gelical counsels of consecrated celibacy, poverty,
and obedience. As Augustinian women we strive
to be of “one mind and heart on the way to God.”
Community is the first mission and charism of our
religious community. Contact: Sr. Angelica Summer,

Sisters of the Good Shepherd (R.G.S. and
C.G.S.) We are driven by a vow of zeal. We are an
international congregation with communities in 73
countries. Our work is of God and our mission is one
of reconciliation. We strive to model our lives after
the heart of Jesus, the Good Shepherd, who left the
flock of 99 to respond to the one sheep in special
need. Our apostolic work centers on marginalized
and hurting people who are affected by violence,
abuse, and neglect, most notably women, girls, and
children. We are strong social justice advocates
and have a seat on the United Nations Economic
and Social Council, where we have joined others
around the world to end human trafficking. Our
contemplative ministry focuses on prayer to bring
the liberating love of Jesus, the Good Shepherd to
all of God´s people. Good Shepherd Sisters help
others to transform their lives. It is thrilling and
rewarding work. Apostolic Vocation Director: Sr.

Sisters of the Holy Family (S.S.F.) The Sisters of
the Holy Family were founded by Henriette De-lille, a free woman of color, in 1842 in New Orleans, Louisiana during the time of slavery. Her
Sisters have depended on the grace and goodness
of God and lived according to His will, their motto: “No cross. No crown.” They were founded to
help the sick and elderly, to teach uneducated, and
to bring the message of Jesus to the poor and marginalized. For 175 years, we have used our gifts
for teaching, nursing, social service, administration, pastoral, housing, and prison ministries in
