The Sisters of St.Joseph of Lyons are Called and Challenged to be the bearers of hope for the world today and to foster life promoting relationship among ourselves with others and the entire cosmos.

The presence of the Sisters of St.Joseph of Lyons in India started in 1906 when the Missionary sisters from France, United States, and Mexico came to Madurai,Tamilnadu to respond to the crying needs of that time. There interaction with the local people made them understand the pressing needs of the Women of Madurai to have facility for Education. So in order to educate the poor women in and around Madurai, Educational Institutions like St.Joseph’sHigh School Madurai and R. C. School, Usilampatti, started in 1930’s and Holy Family School, and Fatima College in Madurai in the 1950’s.

Our society is marked by Eco-devastation, Ethnic terrorism, Consumerism, Materialism and Gender discrimination and Violence of all types which results in Dehumanisation of persons. In the 1970’s reading the signs of the times and the needs of the people Our Mission and Ministries were re-oriented towards empowering particularly rural women, Children and Youth and to uphold their dignity. We serve them without distinction of race, religion, caste, culture or language.
