Reflections

Our charism is rooted in our spirituality. We invite members of the family of Joseph to share their personal reflections about spirituality and mission to inspire, uplift and educate.

Border Compassion

These two stories come from sisters who have traveled to Mexicali, Mexico with the new organization Border Compassion. Its mission is to invite faith communities to cross over at the U.S./Mexico border and offer a compassionate humanitarian response.

Associates promise to pray “individually and communally with the Sisters of St. Joseph.” Maria Beck takes that promise seriously.

Never Stop Learning!

What would it be like if all of us celebrated this Black History Month as a reminder that there is always more to learn and enjoy from the rich diversity of the Body of Christ?

Celebrating the New Year

Standing here, on the threshold of another year, gives me the opportunity to look both back at the past and forward to the future. I like to think about what I want to leave behind and what I want to carry into the future.

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.
