How We Serve


We listen to and articulate the social justice concerns of the “dear neighbor” to energize and empower people to be agents of change through advocacy, consciousness raising, prayer, action, and direct services.

The St. Joseph Worker Program creates a year-long service opportunity for women in preparation for a life-long commitment to social change and personal transformation.


Established in 1988, the CSJ Educational Network, a ministry of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange, collaborates in the Church's mission of education through a network of Catholic schools throughout California. Empowered by the Sister’s charism, the Network is committed to being builders of unity and instruments of reconciliation.

The Center for Spiritual Development serves as a sacred epicenter responding to spiritual needs of local and global communities of faith. 


St. Joseph Health System formed in 1981 as one of the first Catholic healthcare systems in the country. In 2015, St. Joseph Health and Providence Health and Services came together to serve the dear neighbor across seven states from Alaska to Texas.

The Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange Healthcare Foundation was established in 1992 by a charitable contribution when Health Plan of America, an HMO owned by St. Joseph Health System, was sold.  The Foundation supports programs consistent with the Mission of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange.  Over $50 million has been awarded since the Foundation’s inception to meet the needs of the dear neighbor.

The CSJ Center serves faculty, staff, alumni and students, offering a forum for dialogue, a place of education and a resource for reflective action. Through a diverse array of offerings, the CSJ Center aims to be a presence for the needs of the LMU community in terms of the pursuit of LMU's mission to encourage "the service of faith and the promotion of justice" at LMU and beyond.

CSJ Shelter for
Refugee Families

The Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange strive to help our brothers and sisters caught up in forced migration and the confusing processes to legally find a home.  We collaborate with faith-based networks to house families at undisclosed locations via the CSJ Shelter for Refugee Families.  Your contribution assists in expenses such as housing, food, clothing, medical, insurance, legal fees and school expenses.  Thank you for helping your brothers and sisters in need.


100 Days of Prayer started in 2017 as a series of guided prayers, and has continued with providing hundreds of prayers every year!
