Visiting the Log Church

While in St. Louis for the Kakehashi gathering, some sisters had the opportunity to visit the Holy Family Catholic Church in Cahokia, Illinois. The log church that stands there is the same church that the first Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet worked, ministered and prayed in when they arrived in America.

Eco-Challenge: Pick sustainable paper products

Tissue products such as toilet paper, paper towels, paper napkins and facial tissue are found in many households. They are cheap and convenient. These products are manufactured from trees that have been growing for centuries and are turned into items that we use for seconds before we throw them away.

A Glimpse into the Archives

October is American Archives Month, so we’re putting a spotlight on our archivists at the Carondelet Consolidated Archives. They are responsible for preserving and sharing the history, spirit and memory of the congregation. To learn more about our archivists and the history stored within the archives, we asked each of our archives staff members to take a picture with their favorite artifact.

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.
