Welcome to the Into the Future Collaborative of the US Federation of the Sisters of St Joseph. We are Sisters of St Joseph who were born in or after 1952, vowed members of the CSSJ congregations in the United States and Canada, sisters of the 21st century, a mosaic of ages, cultures and backgrounds. We meet annually to pray, learn, support and affirm one another.
“Meta-narratives that formed the fundamental assumptions of the twentieth century are no longer even meaningful conversations. There is a preference for small, self-organizing groups. Networks replace hierarchies. Federation replaces subsidiarity. Our lives are defined by the decisions we make and the company we keep, rather than by mission statements and static doctrines. As it moves into the future, religious life will thrive to the extent that it is able to let go of the past and engage the future.”
