The Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph the Worker was founded by Bishop Richard H. Ackerman and Mother Ellen Curran on June 1, 1973, in the Diocese of Covington, Kentucky. It was approved by the Holy See on May 1, 1974. We are a congregation of diocesan right, with apostolates in education, healthcare, and domestic and clerical work in our institutions.
Loyal to the Magisterium of the Church, we strive after the perfection of charity through vows of chastity, poverty, and obedience, life in community, and growth in union with God through prayer. In the spirit of simplicity, self-sacrifice, and charity, each Sister has made her own the community motto:
“HERE I AM, LORD, I COME TO DO YOUR WILL.”
Applicants should be between the ages of 18 and 30 (exceptions are made on an individual basis), possess good physical and mental health, and have a high school diploma or its equivalent.
