"We commit ourselves to be involved in ministries and action which affect the contemporary situation of women in church and society." (Constitution 22)

"Community life sustains us in ministry. Likewise ministry enlivens and enriches our life in community. In discerning our choice of ministry we take account of this mutual relationship." (Constitution 19)

We rejoice in God's daily invitation to seek justice, to love tenderly, and to make the Good News visible as we minister in education, health care, justice advocacy, missions, spirituality and with women and families

Each sister or associate answers our call to seek God's gift of peace and pursue justice through his or her own particular ministry calling. Read some of our ministry stories.

Sponsored Ministries are those in which the sisters are responsible for insuring that the CSJP charism permeates every aspect of the life of the institution. Most of the CSJP sponsored ministries described in this section include links to the ministry websites. If you would like to support any of our ministries, please use the links to the ministry websites provided in this section of the web site.




"We must be signs of hope and healing in the midst of the cultural reality in which we find ourselves."

Ann Rutan, CSJP
