Religious Hospitallers of St. Joseph

About Us

It’s Celebration Time for the Religious Hospitallers of Saint Joseph!

This year we are celebrating the 350th anniversary of the arrival of three of our Sisters from La Flèche, France to New France (Montreal) and the death of our Founder Venerable Jérôme Le Royer de La Dauversière on November 6th, 1659.

Today the celebration of our lives as R.H.S.J.s continues, a time of celebration, contemplation and loving service to the sick, the poor and most needy as we honour our past, our present and our future in the Church and our world.


Faithful to our Founder’s dream, energized by the love of God, our Mission in the Church is to be in collaboration with the men and women of today as witnesses of a Loving God who unites and frees, by incarnating the tenderness and compassion of Christ in the service of the sick, the poor and the most needy who are his members.

Young people like yourself are living on the streets. They certainly need you!
In our day, there are still victims of violence. Do you find yourself moved by this?


Detox, rehabilitation, palliative / hospice care, care of the sick and the elderly, the handicapped, prisoners and the homeless. Evangelization, teaching, pastoral ministry in parishes, hospitals and with youth. Today this mission takes us to France, Canada, United States, Peru, Dominican Republic and Mexico.
