Care of the sick has always been one of the ministries of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Peace. We were found in hospitals on the east and west coast of the United States as well as in the United Kingdom. Our involvement on the boards and actual ministries of the following institutions continues our commitment to health care. Sisters and Associates also minister directly in health care in a variety of settings.
