Sisters play music with Hedwig von Trapp at The College of Saint Rose

Snapshot in Time: A visit from Hedwig von Trapp

When I turned the photo over to check for a date, I was amazed to see that the woman standing in the back between the guitar player and two sisters was identified as Helga von Trapp, a member of the famous Trapp Family Singers (as portrayed in The Sound of Music Broadway musical and subsequent 1965 film).

Many Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet are talented artists, including Sister Mary Kay Kottenstette of the St. Louis Province (pictured, forefront). Here she is creating and directing the making of life-size papier-maché figures in Chimbote, Peru.

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.
