Resources for Living the Gospel Today

A Publishing Ministry of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet

Meet Sister Joan Mitchell, CSJ.

Sunday by Sunday began as the vision of Joan Mitchell, CSJ, 20 years ago.  Sister Joan has dedicated her life to the study and teaching of scripture.  She has published religious education materials for more than 30 years with the majority of her work being lectionary-based.

In 2004, the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondolet, St. Paul Province, elected Sister Joan to the community’s leadership team.  During this five year commitment, Sister Joan connected with Catholics from around the country.

Now, Sister Joan is back full time with the broader perspective leadership brings.  She is teaching scripture, leading parish retreats around the country, and most importantly writing.  Sunday by Sunday was good and Sister Joan’s renewed energy is making it even better.  Please email her with questions or comments about your small Christian communities, Bible studies, or faith sharing groups. Sister Joan is reconnecting with our readers and recommitting to the magazine. We hope you are, too!
