“Even a seemingly small act of generosity can grow into something far beyond what we could ever ask or imagine – the creation of a community of love in this world,and beyond this world…” — Henri Nouwen

Partners in Ministry

The Sisters of St. Joseph Mission & Ministries Foundation – a sponsored ministry of the Sisters of St. Joseph – was created to raise and grant funds to support the Congregation, its ministries and other like-minded organizations.

When you make a gift to the Sisters of St. Joseph Mission & Ministries Foundation, you are more than a donor. You’re our partner in ministry.  Together – we bring hope and support to the poor and disenfranchised. We feed the hungry and shelter the homeless.  We care for children, women, families and seniors. We help refugees and immigrants adjust to their new home.  And we give voice to the voiceless – especially the victims of social injustice.

Join us in ministry today with a one-time gift, a monthly pledge or a gift in honor or memory of someone special.  Consider making a lasting impact with a planned gift, or share your time and talent as a volunteer at the Sisters of St. Joseph Community Living Center or one of our ministries.

To learn more about giving opportunities, call the Sisters of St. Joseph Mission & Ministries Foundation, 814-836-4202 or .
