Charism of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet
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 (The Mission Statement of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, Albany NY).
There are approximately 1200 Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet serving the Dear Neighbor throughout the United States with centers in Albany, St. Louis, St. Paul, Los Angeles, and Hawaii; as well as internationally in Peru, Japan, and Uganda.
Vision for religious life
There will always be men and women who are God-seekers, Gospel-dwellers, Christ-bearers; women and men whose imaginations, hearts, and desires who have been so seized by God that nothing else and no one else will satisfy them. The externals will change (because they always do), but the essence of religious life is as eternal, energizing, and exuberating as the heart of God.
