Concordia Sisters of St. Joseph

Loving God and neighbor without distinction: A pontifical institute of women religious of the Roman Catholic Church


It doesn’t matter what time of day it is. You can find Sisters of St. Joseph  in the Sacred Heart Chapel or in the small chapel on second floor. They are the Sisters retired from active ministry who now live at the Nazareth Motherhouse in Concordia, and their ministry now is prayer.

The community initiated a prayer apostolate in 1977. We extend an invitation to all those needing prayer to send your request to us for remembrance in prayer. The prayer board is set up not far from the main chapel, and Sisters regularly check intentions posted there.

If you have a request, you may email it to Sister Donna Otter at

    Please pray for Sarah Parr and infant daughter Lainey (daughter and granddaughter) of John & Jo Koppes.
    Lainey was born on December 29th 6 1/2 weeks early and is still in the NICU in Hastings, NE.
    Sarah has now developed Bell’s Palsy and needs a lot of prayers.

    Prayer Request

    Fall, Christmas, Winter 2023, 2024…??

    Community of Prayer,

    Thank you for praying!

    Fall is also the realization that all is fading away. Winter is not far behind and the shadow of death sweeps our lives and the land. On a bigger canvas of human history it seems we are entering the winter of the new dark ages from 2023,2024 onward. All we can do is enter our heart and labor to enter that rest. And finally that eternal rest. Hebrews 4:11 ” We labor to enter that rest…”

    With a very heavy heart 2023 is turning out to be a very turbulent year of terrible events(Terrible heat waves, weather extremes,unrest,wars and other events happening now) that is shaking our civilization to the core. Manmade and Natural Disasters??

    Pray for peace!

    The last 3 years is any indication we are in deep trouble as a civilization from 2023 onward?

    Pray for peace!!
