The CSJs are the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, who, with our lay Consociates, include women and men committed to “moving always toward the profound love of God and love of neighbor without distinction.”
This movement toward profound love began in France in 1650 when six women and one man tried something new. Without fanfare, they melted into the fabric of life, doing everything they could to help their dear neighbor. They returned to a kitchen, sharing their hearts and what they’d learned about the transformational power of love. The St. Paul CSJ community continues this movement today.

We offer a variety of celebrations, rituals, classes, and volunteer or work opportunities to help foster the common good as we move toward profound love. All are welcome!
