Guidelines for online comments

We welcome comments on all the stories and news reports included in the Sisters of St. Joseph of Concordia website; we hope the information we provide will inspire discussion and a desire to learn more. Regardless of your opinion, we encourage you to share it — assuming your comments remain respectful and add to the discussion.

Comments are reviewed and will be removed if they include:

  • any form of hate speech
  • personal attacks on the writers, sisters or the people who submit comments
  • comments that don’t relate to the subject matter of the post or are simply negative, adding nothing to the discussion

Our current policy is to email the authors of  comments that have been removed to tell them why their comment was not approved, in the hopes of helping everyone express their thoughts under the guidelines presented here. Because of this, please be sure to submit comments with a valid email address.
