Back in the 1970s, there were at least 80 Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet serving on both campuses. Today there is a diminishing physical presence of CSJ sisters at the College, a reality mirroring the decreasing number of women religious nationwide.
"It would be great if we had 20 sisters or more working at the College, but it isn’t to be right now," says Sister Carol Brong, assistant to the dean in the associate in arts program. "Those of us who are here are glad to be here, to keep the spirit alive."
One way to sustain the legacy of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet is to tell their stories. We interviewed some of the sisters on campus and asked them to share their personal journeys. View their stories now.
