Becoming an Associate

Associates, named Consociates in the St. Paul Province, ‘Ohana in Hawai’i, and Familia de San José in Chile–we abbreviate them all as ACOF–are women and men from various faith traditions, married and single, who extend the mission and share the spirit of the Sisters of St. Joseph without becoming vowed members.

Association has a long, rich history with the Sisters of St. Joseph, dating back to the founding of the congregation in France in 1650. Today, these persons continue to bring the CSJ spirit to their jobs, faith communities, and families as they share their gifts in works of justice and peace, care for the poor, and for Earth.
