Soeurs de Saint-Joseph de Cluny


Reunion, land of welcome and meeting place of civilizations, brings together on its own soil peoples from various backgrounds: Europe - Africa - Asia and Madagascar.

  • 8 communities
  • 42 sisters
  • Founded in 1817

The 42 sisters include:

  • 2 sisters from metropolitan France
  • 1 sister from Martinique
  • 3 sisters from India
  • 2 sisters from Madagascar
  • 1 sister from Africa
  • 1 Polynesian sister

A French overseas department since 1946, Reunion has the highest unemployment rate of all French departments.

All the sisters are involved in the mission of the Church and continue to give themselves to this mission through:

  • a listening presence at school and in the parish
  • catechesis to awaken the faith of the small children
  • preparation for baptism
  • listening to youth through student chaplaincy
  • the accompaniment of "uncatechized catholics"
  • visiting the sick

One community’s main mission is providing accommodation for 25 students and spiritual accompaniment in our 16 schools.

In April and May, 2015 the Province of Reunion, for the first time in the congregation’s history, welcomed those attending the Council of the Congregation.
