2020 Spring Benefit Postponed

As we continue to experience great difficulty in our nation and in our world, please be assured that the Sisters of Charity, our Associates and Companions continue to hold you in prayer.

COVID-19 Precautions

The Sisters of Charity of New York are deeply concerned about the safety and health of all impacted by the COVID-19 Pandemic. In light of this crisis, we are taking the necessary precautions to protect the well-being of our Sisters and staff members at all locations where our Sisters live and work. We are diligently monitoring the Center for Disease Control website for the latest announcements and recommended protocols, as well as those of local authorities. We encourage everyone to do the same. It is critical that we do everything possible to protect ourselves and our families, and extend kindness and consideration to our neighbors while staying safe.
Please join us in praying for health care professionals and all who work to protect us. May God bless us all.

Charity Wisdom in a Time of Shared Crisis

With the Covid-19 pandemic, the world has become very small. Truly we are citizens of the world, as Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton said of herself. Pray with Charism Wisdom from our Charity saints and a special reflection for this challenging time. We invite you to join us in prayer.

The Mission Continues: Who is My Neighbor?

For over 200 years, the Sisters of Charity have advocated for our neighbor — those most in need of our love and support. Today we continue to serve our neighbor through our sponsored ministries.

The Sister of Charity, by Pietro GagliardiSisters of Charity of New York

Now in our third century of living lives of love. 

The Sisters of Charity of New York is a community of Roman Catholic women religious who share in the ongoing mission of Jesus. We do so by responding to the signs of the times in the spirit of St. Vincent de Paul and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton. We strive to reveal God’s love in our lives and through our varied ministries with and for all in need, especially those living in poverty.
