Sisters of St Joseph


‘Mary MacKillop’s vision impels us to identify with those who are today’s poor: those who are isolated, deprived, marginalized and rejected, those abused and lacking opportunity and choice’


The justice work carried out by the Josephite Sisters is complex and diverse. True to our call we have gone to the edges and sought out those who live there. The sisters are involved in the following areas:

  • Working with Indigenous Australians and within Indigenous communities
  • Asylum seekers and refugees
  • Ecology and Climate Change
  • Immigration and Migration
  • Housing and Homelessness
  • Make Poverty History and Make Indigenous Poverty History
  • Anti Racism
  • Working with people with Mental Health issues
  • Prison Ministry and care of those who leave prison
  • Advocacy for Anti-Trafficking
  • Education in East Timor
  • Basic health and poverty reduction in Peru
  • Community support programs in Brazil
