The St. Joseph Society of the Sacred Heart (The Josephites) is a congregation of priests and brothers whose exclusive mission is to serve the African-American community. Founded after the Civil War to minister to newly freed slaves, the organization has served the African American community since 1871. The Society supports in parishes and special ministries, spanning across the East and West Coast.

New discernment residence coming soon.

WE NEED YOUR HELP! Our formation residence in Nigeria is overflowing with men preparing to come to the United States for seminary.

We need to move to a larger space and we found just the place! The new space will provide living quarters for 35 men. It will give them an opportunity for prayer and study as they continue their path to the priesthood as Josephites.

Will you contribute to the Josephite seminarian fund now to provide living space for those who are committing their lives in service to the African American community?
