Welcome to St. Joseph Academy’s Campus Ministry Department! We have the blessing of working with each student to help her grow in faith, dedication to service and ability to reflect on her life at SJA and beyond.

We recognize that each of our Angels is on her own journey, and we meet each student right where she is. Campus Ministry provides wonderful opportunities to help plan and participate in liturgies, retreats and community outreach.

The Campus Ministry Room is a great place to hang out before or after school or during your downtime throughout the school day. We have a lot of wonderful things planned for you this year; the continuation of many traditions, but also some new and exciting programs. This is your personal invitation to get involved in Campus Ministry this year. All are welcome and encouraged to join us as we share in GOG (Glimpses of God) and grow in our faith together.

In Faith,
Ms. Anna Hotop, Director of Campus Ministry

Campus Ministry Room

The opening of St. Joseph’s Academy’s Campus Ministry Room in 2017 put SJA at the forefront of collaborative faith-filled learning. Campus Ministry is a vital part of every girl's life at St. Joseph’s Academy. The space is a safe, supportive place where girls can go to help build a lifelong foundation of faith and values. The room is equipped with state-of-the-art technology that Ms. Anna Hotop, Director of Campus Ministry, states “will open endless doors and opportunities for us in Campus Ministry. We are very intentional on incorporating the legacy and charism of our founders, the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, alive and vibrant in all aspects of life at the Academy. The new technology includes video conferencing equipment, which will allow SJA to take to connect directly to CSJ ministries and sister schools around the world.”

This dream project became a reality through the 2017 Auction Fund-A-Need and the generosity of an alumna parent.

    CSJ Founders' Day

    On October 15, we celebrate the founding of the Sisters of St. Joseph. In 1650, six women joined together in community under the patronage of St. Joseph in Le Puy, France, in what became the order of the Sisters of St. Joseph. Devoted to the needs of ordinary people, the sisters lived un-cloistered among the people and offered their lives in love and service to the "practice of all the spiritual and corporal works of mercy of which woman is capable and which will most benefit the Dear Neighbor."
     
    This group of women grew in number and service until they were forced to disband during the political turmoil of the French Revolution in the 1790s. Mother St. John Fontbonne, a heroic woman who narrowly escaped the guillotine, herself, rebuilt the order in Lyons, France. It was she who responded to the appeal from Bishop Joseph Rosati of St. Louis for missionaries to teach poor and deaf children. In 1836, six sisters established the community at Carondelet, the first foundation for the sisters in North America and the cradle of the American congregation. St. Joseph’s Academy opened in 1840.
