PeaceHealth Mission Statement

We carry on the healing mission of Jesus Christ by promoting personal and community health, relieving pain and suffering, and treating each person in a loving and caring way.

Sisters of St. Joseph of Peace Mission Statement

The Gospel of Peace in its mission of justice guides our lives as Sisters and Associates. Our call to peacemaking permeates all aspects of our lives.

Our Purpose

In our health missions and through our ongoing presence in El Salvador, our teams provide health care for people with very limited resources. In our missions our PeaceHealth and Sisters of St. Joseph of Peace team members experience the joy of direct, hands-on care-giving and learn about the realities of life and health in Central America. El Salvador's social and historical context confronts our mission volunteers with fundamental moral issues of war, poverty, justice and faith. Intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually, volunteers gain a deeper and richer understanding of the PeaceHealth Mission. This has been a transformative experience for many caregivers.
