The goal of the Theology Department is to provide the opportunity, atmosphere, and education for students to grow in their understanding of the Christian faith and to engage their faith in fostering a commitment to make the world a more just and peaceful place in the tradition of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet.
- Students will interpret Sacred Scripture to grow in understanding of the Christian tradition and one’s role in salvation history.
- Students will examine the nature and ultimate reality of the human person as revealed in Christ Jesus, described in Scripture and understood through our shared human experience.
- Students will understand the nature and content of sacramentality in community, in experience, personal faith life, and in the Catholic Church.
- Students will be able to describe the charism of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet and articulate how this spirituality is rooted in right relationship and expressed through social justice.
Four credits in Theology are required for graduation.

Volunteers are needed on the 2nd of every month to help serve meals to the homeless at the Sts. Peter and Paul Soup Kitchen. The St. Joe community helps prepare and serve approximately 150 meals, and these are served year-round. If the 2nd of the month falls during the week, Monday through Friday, we provide a dinner. If the 2nd falls on a weekend, we serve a lunch.
