The Congregation of the
Sisters of St. Joseph of the Apparition
Emilie De Vialar

Emilie de Vialar
founded the Congregation
on Christmas night 1832.

It was the start of a great adventure.

It reflects that night in Bethlehem
when Son of God was born of Mary.

 

Joseph was the first witness of
this mystery;
'The angel of the Lord appeared to
Joseph in a dream;
Joseph do not be afraid to take
Mary home,
as your wife, because
what has been conceived within her is
the work of the Holy Spirit.
Joseph did what the angel of the Lord
told him to do.'
- Matt 1: 21

This is why
Emilie called her religious family
'Congregation of the Sisters of
St. Joseph of the Apparition'.

A missionary religious congregation of Pontifical Right,
founded on the 25th December, 1832 at Gaillac, France
by St. Emilie de Vialar,
grand daughter of Baron de Portal,
physician to both kings Louis Philippe and Charles X.

She was canonized by Pope Pius XII, 24th June in 1951.

The name of the institute calls to mind the mystery of the incarnation
as revealed to St. Joseph, according to Mathew 1: 20 - 21.

The name reminds the Congregation of that
which the foundress wanted it to become:
" By vocation, a living sign today of the love of God,
which has become incarnate and
which reaches men through human actions.
( Constitution Art 4)

St. Emilie Governed the Institute for twenty four years and
during her life time opened forty two houses
spread across nineteen countries.
