An Unchanging Charism in a Changing World

The Sisters of St. Joseph have gone through many organizational changes since our founding in 1650, while never wavering from our mission and charism. Today, guided by the Spirit, our congregation continues to discern the best way to govern ourselves.

Partners for the future

As we look at the present and into the future, we celebrate our ministries and work that have been going on for years as well as our new, exciting structures and partnerships. We offer a few examples, amongst many, in the areas of education, healthcare, service and work at the border.

Celebrating 152 years of ministry in Tucson

In 1870, seven brave sisters trekked from Missouri to Arizona to minister to the dear neighbor. After a delay of two years, the 150th Anniversary of the Trek of the Seven Sisters was held on May 29 at St. Augustine Cathedral in Tucson, Arizona.

Violence in our lives

I am angry, saddened and disturbed by the weeks of violence that have been forced into my life. Uvalde, Buffalo, Costa Mesa…and nightly in Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia…. I can go on and on.

Making Changes to Care for Creation

On November 11, 2021, our congregation publicly committed to join Pope Francis and the universal Catholic Church on a seven-year journey to ecological conversion through the Laudato Si’ Action Platform. Efforts towards this commitment have been in the works since 1997, and the journey continues.

The Art of Letting Go

Letting go. Though the reasons may vary, as these sisters from across the congregation share, it is something we all must learn to do.

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.
