Sisters of St. Joseph of Peace (C.S.J.P.) The Sisters
of St. Joseph of Peace are an international community
built on a rich heritage of promoting social justice as
a way to peace. Our founding spirit calls us to further
the work of peace, and our call to peacemaking
pervades our prayer and leads us to a life of simplicity
and service. In accord with our tradition we commit
ourselves to promote peace in family life, in the
church, and in society. We minister in education,
health and hospital services, religious education,
parish ministry, social justice, spiritual direction,
and peace ministry in the U.S., U.K., and El Salvador.
Community life sustains us in ministry. Likewise
ministry enlivens and enriches our life in community.
Recognizing gospel peace as both gift and task, we
believe that prayer is fundamental to our life. We rely
on the love and fidelity of God to lead us in the way
of peace. Vocation Contact: Sr. Jo-Anne Miller, CSJP,

of the Congregation continues today in 14 states,

Sisters of St. Rita (O.S.A.) As Augustinian
Sisters we take seriously St. Augustine’s vision on
community life: “To be one heart and soul on our
way to God.” This is our main charism. We follow
the example of our Patroness, St. Rita of Cascia,
who lived the Gospel life through love, forgiveness
and justice. The source for our ministries is the
Eucharist. As we minister to our brothers and
sisters in our daily life, especially the elderly we
care for and minister to at St. Monica’s Home,
we try to allow ourselves to be “blessed, broken
and shared” by becoming Eucharist to them. Our
apostolate is spiritual/social family care with all
its diverse ministries. If you feel called to this way
of life, we invite and welcome mature women 20
to 50 years of age to minister with us. Contact Sr.
Angelica Summer, O.S.A., St. Rita’s Convent, 4014

Sisters of the Divine Compassion (R.D.C.) As
Sisters of the Divine Compassion we are women of
the 21st century called to be God’s compassionate
presence among the marginalized and oppressed
in our midst. For 126 years we have gathered in
community, prayer, and service to respond to the
brokenness of our world. As prophetic women
attentive to the signs of the times, we are invited to
live into ways of being that are just, non-violent and
inclusive in relationship with all of creation. Our co-founder, Monsignor Thomas Preston reminds us, “.
. . to think that not only may we be the recipients of
the divine compassion, but that God will let us take
this divine compassion into our hands and extend
it to others.” (1888). Susan Becker, R.D.C., 52 N.
