Josophia Craft Centre

Josophia Craft Centre

Our craft outlet specialises in candles and craft sales.

All proceeds are used to assist the charitable works of the Sisters of St Joseph.

Josophia Craft was set up in 1988 as an outlet for the varying craft works of the Sisters. The proceeds are used to fund projects for the welfare of Women and Families.

The name is a combination of the Sisters’ patron Joseph, and the ancient name for wisdom which is sophia hence JOSOPHIA.

Since we began this venture the items offered for sale have changed to suit demand, until now the major items are candles, knitwear, sewing, and cards for various

Items are mailed to various parts of the country, and parishes make good use of the candles for special occasions.

The shop is part of a residence of the Sisters in central Wanganui, and is managed by Sister Marcienne Waite.
