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.

Snapshots in Time: Stations of the Cross

During the Triduum, it seems fitting to highlight the artwork of Sister Anne Pierre Limoges depicting the fourteen stations. These beautiful, yet simple, pieces are rendered in a minimalistic line art style in ink on artist board.

On resurrection, solidarity and fiestas

When I lived in Peru, one of the things that I most admired about the Peruvian people are their gifts of compassion and solidarity. I found this to be especially true among people who have limited material resources.

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.
