National Vocation Awareness Week 
November 7-13
As we celebrate Vocation Awareness Week, the Sisters of Saint Joseph in and around Camden, NJ, with a total of 738 years of service to God and God’s people, continue to celebrate and respond to God’s call by embracing God’s dream and serving the Dear Neighbor with the same zeal and spirit as our founding sisters. We commit to be joyful, courageous witnesses to the Gospel imperative of active, inclusive love. (Direction Statement, 2019) 

Our ministry is a basic gospel call which incorporates the spiritual and corporal works of mercy. With our feet in the street, seeking to meet the needs of every sort of neighbor we minister with God’s people as educators, human service providers, and in various forms of spiritual and pastoral ministry. As Sisters of Saint Joseph, rooted in a love of God and neighbor without distinction, We live and work to bring all people into union with God, one another and all creation. (SSJ Mission Statement)
