St. Joseph Joshi Gakuen holds Walkathon

 Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet

TSU, Japan—Last October 2023, St. Joseph Joshi Gakuen high school held their 38th Annual Walkathon, a fundraising event aimed at supporting the education of children around the world. Participants walk 10 kilometers (6.21 miles) to raise funds. This year they supported the education of children in Sierra Leone, Philippines, Siloam’s Garden (Kenya) and help Doctors Without Borders with the money we raise.

Sister Lucia Yamada, CSJ led the way. They were especially happy to walk together with many parents and graduates.

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.
