A Renewed Mission

In September 2014, 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 2015.
