Brief Historical Background:
In the year 1842, at Tarbes in France, six young girls were drawn together ‘to be for God Alone’. In 1844, the then Bishop of Tarbes gave them the First Rule, named them ‘Sisters of St. Joseph of Tarbes’ and installed Mother Marie des Anges as their first Superior. Health, education, social work and pastoral work are some of their apostolic activities. The Sisters came to India in 1882. Their charism is ‘Trinitarian Communion – contemplated, lived and shared in communities and in missions today.’
