We seek to remain open to present and emerging needs…
(Constitutions p 7)

Our Founder encouraged us never to see an evil without trying to remedy it, so Sisters of St Joseph use their energies to assist people wherever they can in whatever they need.

For over a century sisters in this region ran schools to help bring quality education to ordinary people, thus opening up opportunities for a better standard of living, but also spreading the spiritual values on which a fulfilled life is based.

Today, Sisters of St. Joseph can be found ministering with people in a variety of ways including: pastoral roles in schools; within the Catholic Schools Office; as counsellors and psychologists; as tertiary teachers, especially in the area of Theology and Scripture; in 
retreats and Spiritual Direction; in parishes; in bereavement ministry; in legal work; in adult faith formation; in pastoral ministry in hospitals, on housing estates, in prisons, with refugees and various forms of community support. 

In all situations we hope to be present as the face of Christ. Therefore we focus on the sacredness of the human person with reverence for their culture and respect for the earth which we have been given in trust.
