The charism of the Sisters of St. Joseph is profound love of God and love of neighbor without distinction. This means that there is no distinction between how we seek to love God with how we love ALL our neighbors. We seek a more just world for ALL. The CSJ Community has walked in the Twin Cities PRIDE for many, many years because of out commitment to justice and inclusion, knowing that Jesus welcomed everyone. Our participation in PRIDE is an expression of our faith and inclusive spirit of Jesus.
Members of the LGBTQ Connections Task Group have been supporters of RECLAIM and their critical work with youth for over ten years. At RECLAIM’s 10th Anniversary fundraising breakfast, the CSJ Community was recognized as one of their long-standing supporters since their founding. The Justice Commission of the Sisters of St. Joseph and Consociates continues to stand in solidarity with organizations like RECLAIM and supporting their important work with LGBTQIA+ youth.
As 2020 included both the COVID-19 pandemic and the the murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis Police, the CSJ Community wanted to acknowledge this especially important year. We expressed our support through our following video reflection for the virtual PRIDE that year.
The purpose of the “LGBTQ+ Connections Task Group” is to use the power of our CSJ voice to advocate and act on issues of justice that impact marginalized communities, acknowledging the intersectionality of identities within the LGBTQ+ community.
