About Us

The Congregation of Jesus Mary Joseph is a Catholic Religious Women’s Congregation.

Fr. Mathias Wolff SJ the Founder enkindled the flame of liberation in 1822 when he founded the Society of Jesus, Mary Joseph at Amersfoort, in the Netherlands to educate the poor and the marginalized girls and to revive the faith of the clandestine Catholic families.

Today, 837 members of JMJ follow in the footsteps of Fr. Mathias Wolff in various parts of the world, carrying out the same mission of liberation and the salvation of the soul with a Charism of ‘An ever Adaptable Apostolic Availability’.
