st. joseph worker program
The mission of the St. Joseph Worker Program (SJW) to empower young women as a new generation of faith-based leaders by training them to model the Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph's charism of service to the poor and marginalized.
SJW offers women ages 21-35 the opportunity to be a part of the CSJ community for one year—living in their area, working in their ministries, and sharing their charism of love of God and neighbor without distinction.
St. Joseph Workers live together as a community and are provided with housing, food, insurance, transportation, and a monthly stipend, along with a great training and development program in which they explore the SJW’s four values in depth: leadership, social justice, spirituality and community.
Participants work full-time in CSJ ministries and other non-profits that share the CSJ charism. They support one another through weekly Sharing of the Heart sessions, community nights, and other planned events and retreats. Over the course of the year, the women absorb and integrate the CSJ charism into their lives in extraordinary ways.
