Sister Yolanda with students in Peru
Many of our sisters in Peru teach at the public Fe y Alegría School.

The very first ministries of Sisters of St. Joseph in the United States were schools. In fact, St. Joseph Institute for the Deaf, which we founded in 1837, is still actively teaching today. Many of our sisters are still engaged in educational ministry today.

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.
