The Formation for Mission Framework is a response to the need for a formal induction and formation programme for those who work with us in SOSJ Works.

Each person engaged in ministry brings to the role significant skills, knowledge, wisdom, a value base and a range of personal and professional experiences.

An openness to ongoing personal and professional learning, to formation, enables us to deepen our connections with God, with SOSJ Works, with the earth and her people.

The framework consists of Seven Pillars which embrace the essence of living and working with a Josephite Heart. The Seven Pillars are:

  1. Vision, Values and Mission
  2. Formation
  3. Story
  4. Spirituality, Ethos and Culture
  5. Mission Focus
  6. Structures
  7. The Evolving Story

Each month one of the pillars will be given purpose and clarity and disseminated to all who are part of the mission of the Sisters of Saint Joseph and their incorporated works.

The Framework of the Formation for Mission programme may be downloaded from our ‘Together in Partnership’ page by clicking the link below. A new Pillar will be posted each month and made available for download.
