We Are The Sisters of St. Joseph

As Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, a Roman Catholic congregation of women religious, we are called to the same profound love of God and love of neighbor without distinction that characterized the women who founded our congregation over 350 years ago.

Rooted in prayer, in community living and in the Gospel of Jesus Christ, we commit ourselves to the mission of unity and reconciliation, nonviolence and peacemaking through concrete efforts toward our goal of communion with the sacred, with the Earth, with one another, with the Church and with all whom we meet.

We desire always to move toward a greater inclusivity and unifying love that reverences diverse cultures and faiths, reflects the interconnectedness of all creation and gives direction to our ministry.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to form loving relationships with ourselves, with God, within community, Church, society and all creation.

 We work toward this mission through the ministries of prayer, direct service, consciousness raising and systemic change.
