As Sisters of St. Joseph of Baden, we commit ourselves, our energies and our resources to serving God and the ‘dear neighbor’ without distinction.
We believe that God is alive in our world, in the people whom we serve, and the people for whom we pray. While we continue to respond to the critical needs of these times, we are filled with hope for the future.
As women called to a life of profound union with God and with each other,
we seek to be conformed to Jesus Christ
in his love for God,
for all people and
for all creation.
Using the discernment mode and collaborative feminist and womanist models,
we recognize that violence and the abuse of power
diminish human dignity,
and destroy the earth.
We commit ourselves
to live non-violently,
to work to transform structures that promote violence,
to affirm the dignity of persons,
to be attuned to how all of creation lives and moves
and has its being in God.
