About Us

We are women you can meet anywhere any day.



For more than 169 years the Sisters of Saint  Joseph have served the  people of Long Island from the docks of Red Hook to Long Island’s eastern shore.  When the needs of people called, sisters went to Appalachia, to other parts of the United States and to Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and Brazil.   The education and empowerment of women has always been our  focus. In the 21st century, we continue to respond to needs especially in the areas of justice and the environment.  Strengthened by an energy rooted in prayer, we continue to advocate for the poor and oppressed and to work for the care of the earth and all creation. Our goal is to foster love, unity and reconciliation among all people and with this sacred earth.
