Volunteer Corps 

Providing a faith formation experience, fostering the relationship between young people & the needs of their communities.

About

Founded in 1996, the Sisters of Saint Joseph Volunteer Corps provides a faith formation experience, fostering the relationship between young people and the needs of their communities. Several times each year, high school and college students are welcomed by the Sisters at the St. Boniface Convent to share their home for a week of volunteer service, community living and prayer, and fun.

The experience of a week resonates for a lifetime as students share this extraordinary opportunity to live in religious community and to learn about society, service, and themselves.
