We are a Society of Apostolic Life established in 1871 exclusively to serve the spiritual and temporal needs of the African-American community. The members of the Josephite Society serve in parishes, elementary schools, their high school, prisons, college campuses and specialized ministries in Archdioceses and Dioceses throughout the United States and the District of Columbia. While the primary ministry of the Josephites is to serve in the United States, they also minister in the Archdiocese of Ibadan, Nigeria and in the Diocese of Ijebu-Ode, Nigeria, strictly in formational ministry to their students preparing to come for studies in the United States. The major seminary of the Josephites (St. Joseph's Seminary), is in Washington, DC, where seminarians live and pursue their graduate degrees. The Josephite Society affords its members the mutual support of community life through communal prayers, spiritual and social gatherings as well as through active ministry.
