- In 1996

The Sisters of St. Joseph of the Anglo-Irish Region and those of Bordeaux joined forces with the Sisters of St. Joseph of Lyon.

As Sisters of St. Joseph we are committed to our apostolates and responsible for the mission entrusted to us.  Wherever we are, we show our love for all, through our interest, dedication and participation.

We are especially committed to pastoral work and hospitality is a strong point in our lives and in our communities.  We organize personal or group retreats and prepare the young and not so young to receive the sacraments.  We form church wherever people can gather, sit and taste the Lord’s presence in an unusual setting.  We visit the elderly and the homebound in their homes; we also go to retirement homes; everywhere, we bring comfort, joy, and an attentive ear and Holy Communion to those who desire it.

Catholic chaplaincy, at the university and in the army, is also an important part of our mission, as is the apostolate with those who renounce prostitution or drugs. The homeless are not forgotten, especially when they need to be listened to or supported.

Another important ministry involves visiting and communicating with our elderly and sick Sisters in retirement homes.

Ecumenism is an important part of our apostolate as well as helping various charitable organizations, especially in fundraising.

Our Associates live our charism in their daily lives and meet to pray and share on a regular basis.

All these forms of apostolates allow us to make acts of inclusive love among ourselves, with others and with God.
