Prayer, Piety, and Protest

Cover Image.jpg

The Heritage week and National Catholic Sisters week digital exhibit celebrates the journey of a group of women who, motivated by the struggles of humanity and the desire to alleviate those struggles, came together guided by the Spirit, to make a difference in the world. The journey of the Sisters of St. Joseph began over 350 years ago in Le Puy, France, and continues today to be marked by the reoccurring themes of Prayer, Piety, and Protest

The timeline in the Prayer section of the exhibit pays homage to the history of the Sisters of St. Joseph by illustrating their religious devotion from the inception of the congregation to present. Throughout their history, the themes of Piety and Protest are exemplified by the Sisters’ works of charity towards the Dear Neighbor and their willingness to stand in solidarity to defend the rights of the oppressed.
