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.
Summer brings many celebrations of relationship: with family & friends, with Creation’s breathtaking beauty, with Christ, ever present in his Spirit, in the Eucharist, in the community that is his Body. Find inspiration in Charity Wisdom and seasonal reflections from our founders and friends.
“God calls you to work in this vineyard. Go therefore, having but a single heart and a single intention, and in this way you will bear much fruit.” St. Vincent de Paul
