Celebrating 50 Years!

Saint Joseph Villa Begins Golden Anniversary with a Special Eucharistic Liturgy

St. Joseph Villa Front Circle

It was a beautiful day in Flourtown, Pennsylvania on Sunday, September 17, 2017, as Saint Joseph Villa opened its Golden Anniversary Year with a special Eucharistic Liturgy. Mass was followed by a reception and tours of the newly renovated spaces at the Villa. Approximately 250 Sisters, patrons, family and friends attended the event.

Thank you to Archbishop Charles J. Chaput, OFM, Cap., D.D. and to the many priests and seminarians who celebrated this milestone with us.

Enjoy this sampling of photos from the day.

The Maxims of the Sisters of Saint Joseph are short sayings of wisdom given to our first sisters but meant for all persons who aspire to make a difference in the world:

Have good intentions in whatever you do, but always mind your ego!
