Holy Family parish was privileged to enjoy the pastoral support of a community of St. Joseph of Annecy from1986 until 2007.
The Order was founded in 1650 in Le Puy, France by a French Jesuit, Jean Pierre Medaille.  Aware of the many needs of the destitute around at that time, Fr Medaille desired to draw all peoples into the unconditional love of the Blessed Trinity.  It was his purpose that he founded the Sisters of St. Joseph whose mission is according to the intention of their founder, to bring about the total union of ourselves and our neighbour with God, of ourselves with others, of all others among themselves and with us all in Jesus and in God His Father. The sisters have aspired to fulfil this mission in many ways down through the past three centuries.  In discerning the needs of the times, as did their founder, the sisters have responded with zeal and enthusiasm and courage to make Christ Known and loved by all showing preference for the poorest of the poor and most neglected. The Sisters of St. Joseph of Annecy are an international Congregation with established communities in France, Switzerland, India, Africa, England, Wales, Ireland and Scotland.
