Desirous of living our baptismal consecration in a self-oblation of thanksgiving and praise to God, we follow Christ in a life of prayer, evangelical counsels, community, and the apostolate of Catholic education, care of the elderly, domestic, and secretarial work. We live a contemplative/apostolic life and cherish a special devotion to the Holy Eucharist, to the Blessed Virgin Mary and St. Joseph. We strive to be a visible expression of the love of Christ and the mystery of the Church in a spirit of simplicity, self-sacrifice, and perfect charity.

Founded in 1973 in the Diocese of Covington, Kentucky by Bishop Richard H.Ackerman and Mother Ellen Curran, the Sisters of St. Joseph the Worker received canonical approbation in 1974.

Applicants should be between the ages of 18 and 30, possess good physical, mental and moral health, and have a high school diploma.
