CSJ Statement on “Sisters of Peace”

Regarding the McDonald Sisters portrayal in the History Theatre play “Sisters of Peace:”

The McDonalds are four sisters by birth who became Sister members of our community of women religious, the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, St. Paul Province. Their lives, particularly their peace and social justice advocacy work, are portrayed in Minnesota’s History Theatre play, “Sisters of Peace, A Story of Love, Courage and Compassion” during March and April 2019.

 Our hope and prayer are that this play will be a catalyst for respectful discussion, yielding compassion and understanding for all regardless of race, gender, orientation or belief.

 The Sisters of St. Joseph are called to “look to the Creator who loves all without distinction.” This love is, we believe, much needed in today’s world where respectful conversation and respect for differences are too often lacking. Recognizing our individual rights to act according to our own moral conscience, interpreting this foundation within the context of our lives and ministries is a lifelong and uniquely personal pursuit. With this in mind, we acknowledge our tremendous love, support, and respect for the McDonalds and all of our Sisters.

The Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet
