The facade of the U.S. Supreme Court building

As a congregation, we have made commitments to work toward dismantling interlocking systems of oppression and to walk with women as we claim our voice and work toward an inclusive church and society. Guided by those commitments, we support the nomination of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Judge Jackson’s work representing criminal defendants as well as her participation on the bipartisan Sentencing Commission is particularly meaningful from the Catholic tradition. She would also be the first Black woman and just the sixth woman to serve on the high court.

The Senate Judiciary Committee has now scheduled a vote on her nomination for April 4, and we request that the Senate hold a respectful, thorough and swift confirmation process for Judge Jackson.

    I urge you Senators to vote to confirm Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the U.S.
    Supreme Court. She is a fighter for justice for all people..

    I regret that I cannot support this recommendation. During the Congressional hearings which I watched, Judge Jackson could not define the word “woman” or say when life begins. There are other reasons why I cannot support her nomination and they have nothing to do with the fact that she is a Black woman.

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.
