Albany Province

Located in the Capital Region of New York, our Albany Province includes sisters, associates and partners in mission. We work to bring God’s unifying and reconciling love to those in need. Our sisters minister in a variety of areas including spiritual direction, education, healthcare and hospitality. New ministries emerge as we identify needs in our society. We actively stand with justice and peace initiatives that align with our mission to create a more peaceful and connected society.

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.
