    Mertice (Sister Anne Eugene) was a dear friend from my SMA class of 1954, and all throughout her life. I will miss her.

    I remember with great fondness Sister Anne Eugene. During my years as Principal of De La Salle High School, Concord, CA., I enjoyed her frequent presence at the Brothers’ Community Mass on school mornings. She was deeply committed to education and the well-being of young people. Her faith was a lively one, her humor real and enriching, and her love for the CSJ was abiding. May she rest well in the loving and merciful arms of our God.

    Farewell Sr. Anne Eugene 🥲 I still remember the day we entered. It was hard saying goodbye to our families and you were crying. Many years of dedicated service and love for others was your gift. May you rest in peace. 💕

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.
