The rich tradition of the Sisters of St. Joseph is not a thing of the past. It is an on-going ministry that serves God’s people on Long Island and beyond.
The level of poverty and violence in our society, the needs of immigrant people, advocating for women and their children and many other issues point to an increasing need for the continued work of the Sisters of St. Joseph. Today over 5,000 benefactors are partners in our ministries keeping the mission alive through their prayers and financial support. We are grateful to all those who join us in our efforts to continue our mission through our varied ministries. Your continued support and encouragement sustain us not only financially but also through your valued friendship.
