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.

Report from the U.S./Mexico border

I am grateful for the opportunity during the month of September to be in the presence of hundreds of migrants every day while volunteering with the Kino Border Initiative. I was with four other sisters in a project called Catholic Sisters Walking with Migrants.

Border Compassion: The Bridge to Compassionate Encounters

I recently had the opportunity to visit the Posada del Migrante Shelter in Mexicali, Mexico. This shelter provides a home for up to 300 migrants, many of whom have fled their countries due to threats of violence and are seeking asylum in the United States.

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.

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.
