Everything we do is in response to the ever-changing needs of our world. Our ministries change with the times and are different today than they were in the late 1800s when we first arrived in the Erie Diocese. What never changes is our spirituality and our desire to be sisters of the neighborhood working to build relationships and create unity.

The mission of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Northwestern Pennsylvania, its agregees and associates, is to unite all people with one another and with God by responding to the ever-changing needs of the world and serving the neighbor without distinction.
