A retreat for the laity and religious presented by Carol Quinlivan, CSJ

The Celtic Christian propensity to find the Divine in all created nature speaks with uncanny relevance to many of the concerns of our present era. The ancient wisdom, visual images, poetry, prayers and blessings of Celtic Christian spirituality take us beyond words to re-ignite our imagination and restore what we have neglected or forgotten.

Seeing through the sentimentality of the stories and legends surrounding Patrick and Brigid of Kildare we re-discover the transformative power of becoming an Anam Cara, Soul-Friend, to ourselves and to those we meet on the road of life. They both epitomize the beauty of hospitality and companionship, which is capable of fanning into flame the spark of faith in our own hearts. Exploring their witness of tireless evangelization can re-ignite our own imaginations and creativity.

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.
