What's New?

We use our gifts generously in embracing the command of Jesus: pray, heal, teach, love and forgive. In gentleness, peace and joy, we strive to become more loving and effective instruments of Christ’s zeal, knowing God is faithful in accomplishing the mission through us. (Constitution)

As Vatican II made its impact in the mid-1960s, Sisters of St. Joseph fulfilled the Council’s directives by extending their services to a rapidly changing society. Along with the traditional ministries of education and health care, sisters assumed new and wider ranges of social services, fine arts, pastoral ministries, spiritual direction, ministry to the imprisoned, the unemployed, the mentally ill, the aged, the addicted, the unchurched, refugees, the divorced and separated—to all of God’s people in need.

In addition, the needs of today’s times call us to respond to wider-ranged roles of spiritual leadership. On all levels of ministry, sisters are sharing pastoral responsibilities with the clergy in order to continue to meet spiritual needs of God’s people and carry on Church-related ministries.
Once more, we hear echoing in our hearts the words of Father Jean Pierre Medaille, calling us “to practice all of the spiritual and corporal works of mercy of which women are capable.”

Some of Our Ministry Websites

Each Sister of St. Joseph makes her ministry choice after prayerful consideration and dialogue with a member of the Province Leadership Team. She bases her choice on the needs of the congregation, the needs of the times in which we live and her own giftedness.

The following are but a few of the ministry sites in which Sisters of St. Joseph of the Albany Province serve. The variety reflects the call of our founder, Rev. Jean Pierre Medaille, SJ, “to respond to the needs of the times.”  Click on the name of the institution to see the many ways in which the mission and ministry of the Sisters of St. Joseph is lived out on a daily basis.
