Go deeper.
Journey farther.
Respond boldly.

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.

Our spirituality

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.

About us

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 our dear neighbors. We seek to build communities and bridge divides between people. Since our first sisters gathered in 1650, our members have been called to “do all things of which women are capable.” The first sisters of our congregation arrived in St. Louis, Missouri in 1836, and we now have additional locations in St. Paul, Albany, Los Angeles, Hawaii, Japan and Peru. Today, we commit to respond boldly to injustice and dare to be prophetic.
