Called by God and passionate for the mission of Jesus, the Sisters of St. Joseph come together to serve all persons. With a distinctive spirit of hospitality and a particular concern for the poor, we witness to the Gospel message by being a unifying and reconciling presence to a world in need.

Thought For The Day

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
—Mark Twain

Our congregation is a community of women religious who through public profession of the evangelical counsels of chastity, poverty and obedience promise to live entirely for God and for others. In the spirit of Jesus who emptied Himself in order to reveal God’s love, we look to the Creator who loves all without distinction and to the Spirit who can enable us to be “a congregation of the great love of God” in the world. We turn to Mary and to Joseph for examples of faithfulness to the inspiration of the Spirit and the humble, cordial service to the neighbor.

We Are The Sisters of St. Joseph
As Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, 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 365 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.

Our patron, St. Joseph, reminds us of the openness and humility we need to deepen communion as expressed in our Constitution, our early documents and the Gospel of Jesus. Joseph, man of justice, peace, courage and love faithfully followed the inspirations of the Holy Spirit and calls us to do the same.

In the spirit of hospitality to which our founders called us, we welcome you to our website!

We are honored to pray for your intentions
through our Prayers Please website.
