Racial Justice

We are committed to deepen awareness of our complicity and work toward dismantling interlocking systems of oppression. These are the latest stories of how we and our partners are working for racial justice.

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.

Never Stop Learning!

What would it be like if all of us celebrated this Black History Month as a reminder that there is always more to learn and enjoy from the rich diversity of the Body of Christ?

The Congregation Confronts Racism

As police shootings and immigration policies have shined a spotlight on racism in the United States recently, our congregation has made confronting and dismantling racism a priority. While we advocate for change in our society and work to examine our personal biases, we have also been grappling with our own congregational history.

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.
