We know that Lent is the season of the church year during which we draw closer to God in preparation for Christ’s resurrection at Easter. Prayer, fasting and almsgiving, the three pillars of Lent, are intended to increase our reliance on Jesus and open space in our hearts for God to fill.
Dare to be prophetic.
The Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet are a congregation of Catholic sisters. We, and those who share our charism and mission, are motivated in all things by our profound love of God and the dear neighbor.
The spirituality of the Sisters of St. Joseph is centered in love, the central commandment of Jesus—a love that seeks to achieve unity of neighbor with neighbor and neighbor with God. Our life together in prayer and in community impels us to reach out to the dear neighbor, whoever they may be, whatever the need they might have.
Our commitment to justice
The Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet work to bring loving unity to a divided world. Urgent needs call us to bold conversation and prophetic action. We educate, advocate and take action to promote social justice.
Recently, several sisters from our Los Angeles Province attended the Religious Education Congress. While there, our sisters attended speeches, helped run booths and met both old and new friends.
We are all called to be contemplatives in action. Our individual lives, our communities and our era in time continue to strain toward or yearn for grounding in the Divine that guides us in action.
