The Centre International clearly states their mission on their website:
“Embracing the past, we study and deepen our awareness of our history, tradition, and spirituality to ensure the preservation of our 'story' for future generations.
Nurturing the present, we engage Sisters of St. Joseph, associates, and lay partners in deepening their understanding of our mission and charism; we do this within an international setting and with a global focus.
Creating a new future, we interpret our charism in light of today’s world, and informed with this new understanding, help establish ways to incarnate the prayer ‘that all may be one,’ particularly among the young and in areas in need of reconciliation.”
In a world that seems constantly divided, the Center affirms the necessity and benefit of genuine encounter and communion with one another through different offered programs. The Center envisions a world that is not defined by the differences among us, rather strives for unity and common purpose--strives to foster relationship and give people the opportunity to understand and interpret the charism of the Sisters of St. Joseph.
Not only is the Center's mission beautiful, but its location is beautiful as well! The Center has two main buildings situated on grassy fields near the peaceful Borne River. The area is nothing short of picturesque and charming--the perfect place for meaningful reflection.
