World Youth Day 2023 Pilgrims standing in a massive crowd.

Experiencing World Youth Day

Two of our sisters, Eileen McCann and Yoli Arribasplata, joined over a million people in attending World Youth Day in Portugal this August. They met with other pilgrims from all over the world and shared the joy of our charism and mission.

Sisters Rising Worldwide

There are resources enough to take care of the world’s needs. Those resources just aren’t in the right places. This was the premise when Sisters Patty Johnson of St. Louis, Judy Molosky and Suzanne Jabro of Los Angeles and Irene O’Neill of St. Paul got to chatting. Together, they agreed that sisters working on the ground likely understand the root causes of the poverty around them and what’s needed to address them.

Partnerships for the Planet

As our congregation has implemented various changes to reduce our plastic consumption and carbon footprint, we’ve been building bridges throughout the congregation, within our sponsored ministries, alongside other organizations and even globally with the United Nations.

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.
