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.
“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
(Abelly 2:126; CED III: 82-83)

Now in our third century of living lives of love.

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.
