The Sisters of St. Joseph Brentwood are proud to announce they will be the next congregation to create a St. Joseph Worker Program – St. Joseph Worker Program Brentwood, N.Y.
Though it will be new to the areas the Sisters of St. Joseph Brentwood serve, more than 120 women have gone through the St. Joseph Worker program in the last 14 years, living in an intentional community, volunteering in a variety of sites focused on social justice and helping meet the needs of those living in poverty. During the course of their volunteer year, the women grow in many ways, they become part of the Sisters of St. Joseph and as alumnae, they continue the mission of the Sisters of St. Joseph as they live out the gospel in their many different jobs, ministries and life choices.
This volunteer program is unique because the CSJ charism “Loving God and Neighbor without distinction” is unique and desperately needed. The Sisters believe that this is the time for the congregation to continue to share their beliefs through the St. Joseph Worker Program. The formation of young women focused on the Sisters’ charism of reconciling love and unity is the aim of the program.
