Friday Community Highlight – Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet

By | Aug 29, 2008

This week’s highlighted community is:

The Sisters of St. Joseph  were founded in the early 1600’s and then refounded in 1807 after the French Revolution, during which convents in France were suppressed.  The first sisters came to the United States in 1836, to a small town near St. Louis, called Carondelet.  They now have provinces established in Missouri, New York, Minnesota and California.  Today, the sister’s ministries include teaching, parish work, health care, retreat work and spiritual direction; they also conduct outreach centers.
