Connecting with Younger Generations

Bridging generational gaps can be a challenge, but it is one that sisters from all over the congregation have taken on. Here are just a few examples of how our sisters are connecting with younger generations.

Visiting the Log Church

While in St. Louis for the Kakehashi gathering, some sisters had the opportunity to visit the Holy Family Catholic Church in Cahokia, Illinois. The log church that stands there is the same church that the first Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet worked, ministered and prayed in when they arrived in America.

Partnerships for the Planet

As our congregation has implemented various changes to reduce our plastic consumption and carbon footprint, we’ve been building bridges throughout the congregation, within our sponsored ministries, alongside other organizations and even globally with the United Nations. 

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.
