Where we are
While the Sisters of St. Joseph was founded in France in 1650, when asked to move to the United States in 1836, they obliged and thrived, spreading out to minister across the country. From there, they opened missions in Asia, South America and Africa.
Today, our sisters and associates serve the dear neighbor in the United States, Japan and Peru. We are one international congregation with provinces in Albany, New York; Los Angeles, California, St. Louis, Missouri and St. Paul, Minnesota. Together, we support sisters and associates in ministry in 37 states, including Hawaii.
A global history
