Our Identity

Society of Jesus Mary Joseph - Our Identity

We remain recognizable through our Society’s cross and ring. We are adorned with the Cross of Christ on the day of our profession. We confirm our spousal relationship on the day of our final commitment when we receive the ring as the symbol of our covenant with Him.

We wear a simple uniform dress adapted to climate and culture as determined by the Provinces, bearing witness to simplicity.
