Queensland Region

The Queensland Region is made up of the Local Communities of Sisters across Queensland

The Sisters of Saint Joseph arrived in Brisbane Queensland in December 1869.

The diversity of the Region is reflected in rural outback, tropics, geothermal activity, ever-changing landscapes and cities.

The Sisters of Saint Joseph are committed to walk with and support the indigenous peoples of Queensland respecting the particular cultural differences of this state and the challenges that offers to this Region.

The Sisters continue to respond to God’s Mission through education, spirituality, pastoral care, ecology, health, family support, counselling, prayer and hospitality. We are always open to the new and emerging ways God calls us to identify in our commitment to make the cause of the poor our cause.

In this age of technology we endeavour to find ways that will keep us connected from the western border of Queensland and across the whole state.
