Stimulated by the Holy Spirit of Love and receptive to His inspirations, the Sister of St. Joseph moves always towards profound love of God and love of neighbor without distinction.

The Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet is a congregation of women religious which traces its origin to and follows the spirit of the foundation made in LePuy-Velay, France about 1650 by Jean Pierre Medaille, S.J. The first Sisters of St. Joseph came to America from Lyon, France in 1836. Today, the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet have four provinces in Albany, New York; Los Angeles, California; St. Louis, Missouri and St. Paul, Minnesota with a vice-province in Peru.
