As Sisters of St. Joseph living in the 21st Century, we believe in the power, presence and love of God working through an evolving universe and in God’s self-communication through Jesus Christ. As women of the Church, we recommit ourselves to Jesus’ mission as we move with the Spirit to bring about God’s reign and seek to promote justice, to live lives of non-violence and to respond to the needs of our time.

Chapter 2011 Direction Statement
In 17th century France in the small village of LePuy, six courageous women envisioned a community rooted in the ‘great love of God and neighbor without distinction.’ Living among the people and moved by this love, these ‘sisters of the neighborhood’ responded to whatever were the needs of the times.
In the spirit of their founders, the Sisters of St. Joseph continue to work tirelessly to bring God’s inclusive love to schools, hospitals, orphanages, health care centers, educational programs for immigrant women, the imprisoned and the forgotten, as well as supporting social justice and eco justice issues.

Mission Moments

Back to School with Help from the Sisters

The Sisters of St. Joseph Brentwood were proud to partner with Adelante of Suffolk County and the Active 20-30 Club of Brentwood on their 2016 Children’s Shopping Spree Event. Close to one hundred families from Brentwood were identified to receive back-to-school assistance. Each child received a $100 gift card to JCPenney and was accompanied to purchase much needed clothes for the school year. The children also received a fresh haircut, school supplies, and more. The Sisters’ assistance will play a crucial part in these children starting a successful 2016/17 school year
