At the heart of the world


The Mission of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Lyons: to promote

the most perfect unity and love of God

among ourselves and toward every kind of neighbor

without distinction remains the same today as it was at the origins of the Congregation.



The Congregation does not have a specific apostolate.

In collaboration with others,

the Sisters endeavor to respond to the needs of the time,

striving to change oppressive structures and seeking justice for all.




The Spirit gathers us within the Church as an international apostolic Congregation,

an expression of universality in which our

very differences become riches for the sake of the Kingdom.” Const.70


Belonging to an international congregation calls us to recognize the values of the other and engage in mutual support.
