The Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet stand with the St. Catherine University community with support and prayer in the aftermath of the multiple fires set on the University of St. Catherine campus by a former student on January 18, 2018.  We are shocked and saddened by her reported statements.

We are thankful that no one was hurt, the fires were quickly contained and the campus sustained only minor damage. We are grateful for the support of those who responded quickly, including campus staff, students and administrators along with local Fire and Police Departments.  We are fully confident that the University remains a safe place for all who seek learning in a Catholic community that respects all faith traditions  and is committed to prizing and growing equity, inclusion, and diversity.
