‘Never See a Need’ is an account of the lives and works of the Sisters of St Joseph of the Sacred Heart in South Australia from the time of their foundation in 1866 until Mary MacKillop’s canonisation in 2010. Much happened during those 144 years. There were dark times and bright times, times of growth and expansion interspersed with times of decline, times of stability and times of change, and through it all, the members of the Congregation never forgot their call to do what they could to remedy the evils and ills of their society. They were educators, but they also looked out for the welfare of the poor and disadvantaged in different ways as they moved across the landscape to wherever they were needed, always a “people on the move” but always stable in their devotion to their ministry.


Marie Therese Foale, who was born at Pinnaroo in the South Australian Murray Mallee, entered the Congregation of the Sisters of St Joseph of the Sacred Heart at an early age. She worked as a teacher in a number of Josephite schools for thirty years before serving as Archivist for the Catholic Archdiocese of Adelaide for a further twenty. She has had a lifelong interest in the history of her Congregation. This volume and her other works are the result of that interest.
