Serving the Spiritual Needs of Our Neighbors

St. Joseph Spirituality Center welcomes all who seek meaning, purpose, and a more profound love of God and neighbor. The Spirituality Center embraces all without judgment, providing beautiful contemplative space on the Sisters’ 80+ acre campus for silent meditation, rest, and renewal in an environment of peace, hospitality, and prayer.

Although we cannot host programs at the Motherhouse during the pandemic, we continue to nurture relationships with God and neighbor through new virtual programs and limited in-person retreats at Trinity House. Questions? Call 724-869-6587 or email
