The Josephite Mission Statement
The Society of St. Joseph of the Sacred Heart, The
Josephites, a religious community of Catholic Priests and Brothers, is
committed to serving the African American community through the
proclamation of the Gospel and our personal witness. Our commitment is
expressed through sacramental, educational and pastoral ministry,
service to those in need, and working for social justice.
The Josephite Society of the Sacred Heart is an interracial,
intercultural community of priests and brothers who work to advance the
teachings of the Church in the African American community. The Society
is the only community of men in the American Catholic Church that is
engaged exclusively in this particular ministry.
Most Josephites work and live in parish settings, with goals of
developing warm, welcoming parishes through vibrant worship, solid
Catholic teaching and ministries that speak to the needs of the faith
