Sister of Saint Joseph of Chambery

Vowed Member

Perhaps you're wondering if God is inviting you to vowed membership? Sooner or later, most people find their home in the world, a place where they are most themselves, where they can live out their deepest values and ideals, and where they can relate to others who share their faith, dreams and greatest visions. God may very well be inviting you to consider life as a vowed woman religious.

As Sisters of St. Joseph of Chambéry, called to follow Jesus in loving relationship with all people, we discover personal gifts and talents and use them in service.

We live out the gospel values, share a deep faith life and reach out to others in need, especially the poorest of this world.

Joy-filled women not afraid to risk, we approach the challenges of daily life with courage, zeal and energy. Whether we work directly with the poor, seek to transform structures of injustice or inequality, or labor side by side with others in education, health care or social services — we do it for the love of Jesus so that all persons might come to know their favor in God’s eyes.

Intrigued by who we are? Could God be calling you to a vowed life as a Sister?
