The mission of Saint Joseph Villa is rooted in the mission of the Sisters of Saint Joseph who founded and sponsor the Villa. The basic desire of the Sisters of Saint Joseph is to reflect a “profound love of God and neighbor without distinction.” Our mission is to live and work so that all may be one. The sisters’ mission of uniting people with God and with one another is the primary focus of all those who work and minister at the Villa. The staff of Saint Joseph Villa strives to reflect the healing presence of Jesus in reverencing the dignity, uniqueness and beauty of each person they encounter.

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!

—SSJ Maxim 83
