New Board Member Mission Commitment

St. Joseph Educational Ministries is proud to be the steward of Catholic sponsorship through the inspiring, compassionate, and bold spirituality of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet that “all may be one.” Our institutions seek to ‘serve God and the dear neighbor without distinction’ and do so through the transformative work of education. 

We are grateful for your consideration to serve one of the institutions sponsored by St. Joseph Educational Ministries. We join you on the journey of discernment, reflecting on the fit and relationship of board members with both the institution they seek to serve, as well as the legacy of the Sisters of St. Joseph (CSJ) both in charism and Catholic identity. We invite you to a thoughtful examination of how you see, experience, and will contribute to the mission and Catholic identity of the institution which you seek to serve.
