The Sisters of Charity of New York elected its new Leadership Team during Assembly 2019 held March 26–31. Sr. Donna Dodge was elected President; Sister Dorothy Metz and Sister Dominica Rocchio were approved by the Congregation to serve as her Assistants. Sisters Sheila Brosnan, Margaret Egan, Margaret O’Brien, and Claire Regan were elected to serve as Councilors. This new leadership team, which serves through 2023, was installed formally on June 29 during the Transfer of Leadership ceremony at Mount Saint Vincent, which has been the Congregation’s home base since 1857.
The Sisters of Charity of New York are an ecclesial community, called to share in the mission of Jesus, in the spirit of St. Vincent de Paul and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton. Our structures of government exist to facilitate this mission:
- by challenging us to live the ideals and to follow the vision of the Gospel
- by encouraging and developing Congregational responses to the needs of the Church and the world
- by providing for the responsible administration of the material resources of the Congregation
- by providing for the growth of the members of the Congregation
Leadership structures foster communication and collaboration within the Congregation and in our relationship with the Church and society.
