Community Living

As Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, we are called to live a life in common, a life in which we support one another, pray with and for one another, encourage one another, love one another—all to strengthen us as we work to continue the mission of Jesus in our world today. Our Constitution best expresses our call to community life:

“The Spirit calls us together to become one heart and one soul in responding daily to the command of Jesus: ‘Love one another as I have loved you.’ Our response demands continuing conversion which authenticates our life together as women of unity and reconciliation.”
 
“In community living, we share responsibility to create an atmosphere conducive to personal and communal growth in God. Through our mutual, lifelong support and prayer, we grow toward deeper love. We express this love to which we are called by sharing who we are and all that we have:
  • Trusting in one another’s goodness
  • Bearing one another’s burdens and weaknesses
  • Rejoicing in one another’s joys and strengths
  • Being compassionate and forgiving
  • Consoling and strengthening one another.”
 “We strive to live in the joy and peace that is the sign of Jesus’ presence among us.”
 
The call to religious life is a call to joy. And what does that joy look like? See the faces of some of our sisters!
