U.S. Federation Event 2022
July 8 at 8:00 am – July 10 at 5:00 pm CDT
What does it look like to belong to a diverse, compassionate and engaged community in the spirit of unifying love? Join the U.S. Federation of Sisters of St. Joseph and members of our “charism family”— sisters, associates, agrégées, St. Joseph Workers, partners in mission—to break open the idea of community, discover what is emerging and shape the path to transforming who we are together at Event 2022: Radically Transforming Community.
This in-person gathering in St. Louis is an opportunity not only to talk about community but to experience it as well. Hear inspiring keynote speakers and panelists. Engage in meaningful conversation. Deepen relationships and build new ones. Encounter community advocates working to transform the carceral system and end cash bail, continuing the charism’s commitment to care for prisoners and uplift human dignity.
