With all the baptised, we share the call to live the fullness of the Christian life by following Jesus of Nazareth. As Sisters of St Joseph, we live a life of chastity, poverty and obedience as a particular way of loving and of living discipleship according to the Gospel.

We seek to remain open to present and emerging needs in order to serve among God’s people whose life experiences challenge and enrich us.

Our Sisters serve in a range of ministries where we seek to support all that promotes the gospel and oppose all that negates it.

We strive to be open and sensitive to people and their cultural contexts, in order to incarnate God’s love and faithfulness in our times and give witness to the reality that Christ our hope is among us. (Cf. Colossians 1:27)

Today Sisters continue to seek to proclaim and witness to the love of God present in the world by their way of life and apostolic service.

They do this, mostly in a voluntary capacity, in parish and diocesan ministries, local community initiatives and wider church and social justice collaboration.

Whether in health or frailty, Sisters are committed to witnessing to the love of God in the lives of all people.

In prayer and action, they seek to offer hope to those in need and so bring about God’s kingdom in their local areas.
