Sisters of St. Joseph of the Third Order of St. Francis
The Sisters of St. Joseph of the Third Order of St. Francis, founded over one hundred years ago, are a Franciscan congregation of almost 400 members dedicated to the spiritual and material development of the human family, especially the minores, the people often forgotten in society. Located in 109 cities in 14 states and 3 countries off the mainland, we serve in diverse ministries, i.e., pastoral work, education, health care, diocesan institutions, and community services.
We strive to live simply and joyfully, in supportive sisterhood, grounded in the Gospel values of Jesus, following the example of St. Francis and St. Clare. Some sisters live in the three congregational homes in the Midwest. Others live singly or in groups that support their ministries. All sisters belong to local community groups that join together for prayer and mutual support. The congregation has a strong associate relationship for men and women partnering in prayer and ministry.
