    At the Senior Breakfast, the Class of 2015 was welcomed into the Alumnae Association by an enthusiastic group of alumnae from earlier graduating classes. Our newest Alumnae Association members enjoyed a tasty breakfast, signed their class banner that will hang at their reunions, snapped 1,000 "selfies" and went home with a few party favors that will help keep Carondelet in their hearts as they enter into their new college lifestyle. We look forward to hearing from them and having them visit campus often!

  • CSJ Sisters & Associates Luncheon

    I am making something new! Do you not see it? Is.43:19

    Four years ago we began praying, contemplating and responding to these words from the Prophet Isaiah in preparation for our General Chapter, 2013.
    Now we are seeing the something new, evidence of the Mystery of Transformation!

    A recent gathering at Carondelet High School ignited that energy of something new and partnering with new eyes! The president, Bonnie Cotter, invited all of the Sisters and Associates in the Bay Area to a luncheon and sharing of the school's renewed mission and vision. The table fellowship was tangible evidence of the support and passion the Sisters and Associates have for CHS's mission, past, present and future. Read a few comments from those who participated:

    Being true to Carondelet's mission and in the spirit of the Sisters of St. Joseph, the focus was on strengthening relationships - appreciating the past, looking toward the future, improving communication with the school community, the civic community and the CSJ community. --Claire Marie Williams, CSJ

    I am so glad I attended the luncheon on May 27. I found it very informative and it had a positive message for me. It is a time for new partnership and the young people coming forth to education seem to have the right focus and dedication we once had as young Sisters. Now we have to let go and let the Spirit work in all of this newness. It is the interim time for sure for all of us including our lay partnership. And yes, they need our support and gratitude. --Carmel Garcia, CSJ

    Bonnie's spirit of welcoming, inclusitivity, and sincerity in inviting the Sisters/Associates of St. Joseph to be a voice in the future plans for Carondelet High School was evidence that she is concerned about perpetuating the charism of the 50-year presence of the Sisters of St. Joseph. Bonnie expressed that she was empowered by our presence, feeling confident that our supportive partnership will enable her to do "all that woman is capable" for the students at Carondelet. Our charism of unity and reconciliation was dynamically present. --Noreen O'Connor, CSJ

  • Renewing Our Mission

    Mission .JPG

    This past September, as part of Carondelet's strategic planning process, Carondelet's Leadership Team and Board of Directors assembled a group to examine how to better integrate Carondelet's mission into everything we do. This group, comprised of Sisters, board members and faculty and staff, quickly realized that in order for our mission to come to life and be actionable, it would first need to be refreshed to be simplified and easier to remember. Thus, the project of mission integration took a bit of a different path, starting not at integration but instead by looking at reworking the language in the mission itself. The group's aim was to reinforce the original spirit of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet while making the mission clear, actionable and easy to remember, so that it could provide direction for all we do as we take our school forward.

    After much prayerful reflection and months of work to get the language and feel "just right," the group presented the renewed mission to the Board and to the Sisters of the L.A. Province for final approval - which was given at the end of March.

    Carondelet High School inspires excellence by preparing young women to live with heart, faith and courage in the Catholic tradition and spirit of the Sisters of St. Joseph. (MISSION STATEMENT 2015)

    A Carondelet graduate is empowered by her Catholic, college-preparatory education and is known as a woman who responds to the needs of the times and makes a positive difference. (VISION STATEMENT 2015)
