The CSJ Center for Reconciliation and Justice, administered by the Congregation of St. Joseph women’s religious order, serves faculty, staff, alumni and students, offering a forum for dialogue, a place of education and a resource for reflective action. Through a diverse array of offerings, the CSJ Center aims to be a presence for the needs of the LMU community in terms of the pursuit of LMU’s mission to encourage “the service of faith and the promotion of justice” at LMU and beyond.
The CSJ Center furthers the presence and charism of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange at LMU. Our spirituality, which calls us to live in God and for others, is based on the charism of the founder, Jean Pierre Medaille, S.J. (1650, Le Puy, France). In the spirit of their foundress, Mother Bernard Gosselin, C.S.J. (1912, Eureka, California) the Sisters of St. Joseph continually seek to move forward with a pioneer spirit of bold faith, foresight, and flexibility as gifts for their mission.
