About

History

The Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet (CSJs) trace their roots to Le Puy, France, where, in 1650, six ordinary women joined together in community under the patronage of St. Joseph. These women served outside cloister dressed in widow's garb and devoted themselves to the needs of ordinary people, living among them and offering their lives in service to these dear neighbors without distinction.
