The Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet (CSJ), Consociates and Partners in Mission are leaders, educators, administrators, builders, healers and advocates who have dedicated their lives making bold moves for real change. Our ministries make BOLD moves to empower our community through education, outreach, healing and advocacy.
