We are affectionately known as the Josephites or the 'Joeys'. We are about 886 Sisters living and ministering throughout Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, Peru, East Timor, Scotland and Brazil.

As we walk as one with people and with trust in God’s Providence we listen again and again for the cry of the poor and respond revealing the hospitable heart of our God. (Ref. 25th General Chapter).
