MacKillop Women
By Diane Strevens

The Sisters of St Joseph of the Sacred Heart Aotearoa New Zealand 1883-2006

In 1883 three young Sisters of St Joseph of the Sacred Heart arrived in Temuka, South Canterbury, to teach in the parish school. One hundred years later, the Sisters of St Joseph - affectionately known as the "Brown Joes" - were teaching in Catholic primary and secondary schools from Panguru in the north to Balclutha in the south.

Their story covers these early years, when the sisters coped cheerfully with frugal living conditions and few teaching resources, and charts the changes in religious life set in motion by the Second Vatican Council. The past forty years have seen the sisters respond to the needs of a changing world by gradually moving out of work in Catholic schools into a range of diverse ministries.
