Travel Journal
  • Who wouldn’t want to take a road trip to #Minnesnowta in the winter? We're accompanied by our new staff member, Jane Aseltyne, with us on a road trip for the first time. 
  • Our podcast guests, Sister Jill and Sister Cathy, offer lots of insights and LOLs! We talk with them about lifestyle changes involved in joining religious life, such as relationships, the vow of poverty, the common life, and unexpected adventures.
  • Lighting, acoustics, sound system, camera angle—lots of variables to consider when setting up for a podcast. Sister Julie has epic bag of cables for any situation.
  • Other stops on the road trip: National Catholic Sisters Week at Saint Catherine University, the inaugural event for an annual celebration of sisters and nuns in service to God’s mission.

About the Congregation

Mission Statement: The Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet and Consociates commit to continuing Jesus’ mission in the world by responding to the needs of our time. In the spirit of the Gospel, we work toward right relationships with God, persons, and Earth. We strive to foster the common good through advocacy, creative arts, education, healthcare, social service, and spirituality. Strength for this mission comes from fidelity to community, prayer, our practice of “sharing the heart,” and celebrating the rituals of church and community.
