Sodalicium Laicale Iosephinum-Marellianum

Federation of the OSJ Cooperators

The Federation is the oldest lay organization whose members dedicate themselves to the promotion of the devotion to saint Joseph and to help the Province especially in their material needs.

The basic group of the federation is called a unit. Almost all parishes under the administration of the Oblates of St. Joseph have a unit. Teachers of all OSJ schools are also automatic members.

Throughout the years, the Cooperators have helped in the formation of the would-be priests and brothers of the Province and in the development and improvement of the churches and seminaries.

Among the top priorities of the Federation is the spiritual formation of every member. This is to give spiritual readiness to the members for them to commit themselves to the service of God. Thus, series of recollections and retreats are given to both unit and federation levels. The cooperators also assist well the Province in the promotion and propagation of the devotions to St. Joseph and St. Joseph Marello.

An Oblate priest is assigned to the Federation of the OSJ Cooperators as their spiritual director.
