The Sisters Of Saint Joseph OF Baden is a congregation of Catholic women who strive to serve all realms of human life, with a special care for the poor.
The Congregation Of The Sisters Of St. Joseph originated in Le Puy, France, around 1650 when some small groups of women began an earnest attempt to live totally in union with God and to serve their neighbors. They nursed the sick, assisted the poor, sheltered the abandoned and cared for orphans. The congregation grew over the centuries, coming to the United States in the 1830s and arriving in Baden --- a town in rural Beaver County --- around 1900.
Their motherhouse is a large, impressive and handsome brick structure completed in 1902.
Today, the Sisters Of St. Joseph Of Baden number more than 200 women. They are chaplains, foster parents, and pastoral ministers; they include a lawyer, drug and alcohol interventionists, counselors, retreat directors and college professors.
These ladies express Gospel values through their ministries of education, health care, social services, spiritual development and hospitality, affirming in all ways the dignity of Godís people.
