After the attacks in Paris on November 13, the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet have sent the following message of support to our Sisters of St. Joseph in France.
Ma chère sœur,
Au nom de toutes les Sœurs de St. Joseph de Carondelet, soyez assurée que nous vous tenons avec vos sœurs et tous les gens de France dans notre prière.
Les actions de violence récentes en France nous rappellent que la paix de Dieu est aujourd’hui plus nécessaire que jamais. Soyez assurée que nous sommes solidaires avec vous et nous renouvelons notre engagement à pratiquer la compassion et la miséricorde de l’Evangile.
Oui, nous vous tenons ferme en prière,
Vos Sœurs de St. Joseph de Carondelet,
Équipe de leadership de la Congrégation
In English, our message reads:
In the name of all Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, be assured that we hold you, your sisters and all people of France in our prayer.
The recent violence in France reminds us that God’s peace is needed now more than ever. Be assured that we stand in solidarity with you and renew our commitment to practice Gospel compassion and mercy.
Yes, we hold you close in prayer,
Your Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet

Communicators from congregations across the US and Canada met in Albuquerque, New Mexico this week for the annual Communicators for Women Religious Conference. Most of the representatives for the Sisters of St. Joseph had dinner together tonight at La Placita in Old Town Albuquerque. It was a wonderful opportunity to connect with each other and share what’s going on in our various corners of the country. Attending from the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet were Kim Westerman (Congregation), Jenny Beatrice and Sarah Baker (St. Louis), Ann Thompson and Michaela Charleston (St. Paul) and Meyling Eliash-Daneshfar and Suzanne Jabro, CSJ (Los Angeles).
We were also excited to be joined by Lynn Levo, CSJ from our Albany province, who was one of the conference’s featured speakers. She presented on “Life in a New Digital Ecosystem” and “Self-Care in a Digital Reality.”
S. Debbie Timmis, CSJ from the Albany Province has been named the new Assistant Director of the Federation of the Sisters of St. Joseph. She will begin her ministry on June 1. To read more please visit the link to the article on the Federation website.
