Mission Statement

The SSJ Mission Corps is a year long volunteer program for young adult women in Philadelphia sponsored by the Sisters of Saint Joseph. The SSJ Mission Corps invites participants to live within a radical, simple, intentional community. The volunteers work with and live amongst those who are materially poor and are encouraged to participate actively in the wider community. Through their experiences, participants will deepen their understanding of and participation in the mission of the Gospel and the spirituality of the Sisters of Saint Joseph. You give us one year, we'll give you a deeper understanding of yourself, your neighbor, and God.

Description

The SSJ Mission Corps is a year-long volunteer program in the city of Philadelphia for young adult women. Volunteers are invited to open themselves to being challenged and transformed as they work for justice and reach out to meet the needs of the "dear neighbors"; growing to understand the deeper meaning of "One Year to Change a Life." While living in community volunteers focus on justice, spirituality, and simple living. You give us one year, we'll give you a deeper understanding of yourself, your neighbor, and God. Volunteers serve the urban poor and marginalized in Philadelphia, live in community with fellow volunteers, and take time to reflect on their service experiences with one another, and challenge each other in prayer and living out the Gospel mission.
