The story of the Sister of Charity in New York began in 1817. It is a story of thousands of lives serving God’s poor, a story of tough love and high standards, a story of caring and compassion, a story of inventiveness to infinity. It is a story of needs met, difficulties faced, challenges overcome, societies changed — with few resources but boundless energy, dedicated colleagues, and trust in God’s Providence. It is a story impelled by the Charity of Christ — and that marvelous mission continues today. This year we celebrate the beginning of that mission. We hope you will join us for some of our events.
