Welcome!! We are the Sisters ofSt. Joseph of Cluny in the Caribbean

 

Our Missions are located in the islands of Trinidad,Tobago, Grenada, St. Vincent and St. Lucia.

Our Life is inspired by our foundress, Blessed Anne Marie Javouhey. We live the consecrated life as expressed in the public profession of the Vows of Poverty, Chastity and Obedience and community living.

Our Roots are in the 18th Century French Revolution when as mother of Manaa young girl, Anne Marie Javouhey heard the call to teach the faith, defend the defenceless and bring the Word to people outside of Europe. She was one of the first women to establish missions in Africa. In the Americas, she is known as the Liberator of Slaves, the Mother of the Colony of Mana, French Guiana.

Our Sisters arrived in the English speaking Caribbean from Martinique, in January 1836. Their first establishment was at Port of Spain, Trinidad.
