Call to Unifying Love

Our call to unifying love impels us to manifest Jesus in our world today as we work for right relationships with and among the Dear Neighbor. We choose to act for justice and to walk with suffering people, especially in times of conflict. As a Congregation, we will use the power of our collective voice for systemic change. (Acts of Chapter 2007)

The Gospel calls us to enter into union with Jesus in the life-death-resurrection mystery of being a human community with joys and tensions, in and for the world. Our commitment to community challenges us to share our hearts and to deepen the quality of our life together. (Acts of Chapter 2007)
The sacredness of all of life and creation motivates our urgent concern for Earth and the survival of its life systems. Destructive aspects of globalization, the unequal distribution and use of resources and other human behaviors affect those who are economically poor and marginalized most immediately and intensely. (Acts of Chapter 2007)
The gift of unifying love calls us to join with the people of God in keeping the mission of Jesus alive in the Church.  (Acts of Chapter 2007)

CSJ Speakers' Bureau

As stewards of God’s many gifts to us, we desire to make our resources available to the community in parishes, schools, neighborhoods, etc. The Speakers’ Bureau is a service offered by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet to enable groups to tap the expertise of our sisters in the areas of retreat days, spiritual direction, Scripture, ethics, the New Story of Creation, environmental justice, communications, seasonal programs, special events and other topics.
