altThe Sisters of St John of God is a congregation of religious women within the Roman Catholic Church. We were founded in 1871 when a group of women responded to an invitation by Thomas Furlong, the Bishop of Ferns in County Wexford, Ireland, to minister to the sick and destitute people of his diocese.

Following in the spirit of our Founders and our Patron, St John of God, we are women concerned with people and their needs.  We take initiatives, promoting life to the full for all by our hospitality and compassion as we discover creative ways to meet the constantly changing circumstances in today'€™s world.

Together with our many colleagues, we seek to continue the healing ministry of Jesus as we endeavour to make visible Christ'€™s compassionate love for his people by our presence and through our ministries.


Vision Statement

We are:

* a welcoming community which reaches out to all
* celebrating Christ's presence
* joyfully living out our Christian calling across distance and diversity

This vision states that as a Diocese, we aim to be a welcoming, missionary, centred on Christ, and each striving to live one's particular vocation. It is in living out our calling that we praise God, follow Christ, influence society and achieve the goal of eternal life won for us by Christ. In the parishes we have encouraged people to measure whatever they do against this Diocesan vision.
