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.

Solar Array Project

The Sisters of St. Joseph recognize that solar energy is an alternative to fossil fuels as it is a   clean, reliable, renewable, and non-polluting,source of energy. In response to our Land Ethic Statement, the congregation partnered with organizations who are interested in promoting clean, sustainable energy use and generation on Long Island.  With a desire to control energy costs, reduce the carbon foot print and move toward energy independence, the Sisters are installing a ground mounted solar array system on the Brentwood property. The system will supply approximately 63%  of current campus energy usage.

The project commenced in August 2017. The Sisters signed a 25-year Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with a solar installer and will be paying less for solar power-generated energy than the conventionally sourced electricity that their  campus currently uses. The project is on schedule to have the solar array completed and connected to the PSEG LI grid by December 31, 2017.
