Sister Barbara Jennings was received into the congregation in 1967. She earned a bachelor's degree in English literature and secondary education from Fontbonne and her master's degree in theological studies from the Catholic Theological Union in Chicago. Sister Barbara has taught at various high schools and facilitated religious studies classes at both Avila and Fontbonne University. Since 2007, Sister Barbara has worked at the Midwest Coalition for Responsible Investment.

Standing Ovation for Selma Marcher, Sister Barbara Moore, at The Black Rep’s “Hold On!”

I recently attended The St. Louis Black Rep’s production of Hold On! with Sisters Nancy Corcoran, Barbara Moore and Joan Filla. Hold On! is a play written by Paul Webb that depicts Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s historic voting rights marches in Alabama from Selma to Montgomery in 1965 and inspired the 2014 feature film, “Selma.” I knew the play would be moving and that Sister Barbara Moore had been to Selma and marched with Dr. King.

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.
