History

At the invitation of Bishop Matthew Quinn of the Bathurst Diocese, the first foundation of the Sisters of Saint Joseph in New South Wales was made at Perthville near Bathurst in July 1872, six years after the founding of the Sisters in Penola, South Australia in 1866.
For the purpose of governance within the Congregation, Sisters in New South Wales were grouped in various ways until 1983 when a single Province was formed. In 2013 this Province was restructured as a Region, part of the ‘Central’ Congregation.
