In a broken and fragmented world,
the Sisters of St. Joseph of Lyon
join with others for the unity of neighbor with neighbor
and neighbor with God.
We commit to live and work
for a more just world
and embrace a global spirituality that reverences
all of creation
as the 'dear neighbor'.

Fundraising Campaign Underway!
Saint Joseph's Nature Sanctuary is the result of a unique partnership of local civic and non-profit organizations who came together in late 2021 around a four-acre plot of land owned by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Lyon along the Sebasticook River in Winslow, Maine. Together, these partners sought to create a welcoming place where anyone could share and learn ways of caring for the earth, build community, integrate their own spirituality, or simply enjoy nature’s beauty.
