The Sisters of Saint Joseph congratulate The Most Reverend Salvatore R. Matano on his appointment as the 9th Bishop of Rochester.

It is with great joy that we welcome him among us in this role of loving service to the people of God in the Diocese of Rochester. In the spirit of the Sisters of Saint Joseph, may he receive every grace he needs to “unite neighbor with neighbor and neighbor with God” in this wonderful corner of God’s earth.

The Sisters of Saint Joseph have a long history in the Diocese of working with the Church and other congregations of women religious to serve the needs of the times in response to God’s call. We anticipate with excitement being able to engage with our new Bishop in meeting the challenges and opportunities presented by this new day in our Diocese’s history.
