Charity Wisdom — Ordinary Time
Autumn 2019

Autumn — a time to thank God for a full harvest of blessings, a time to pray for peace, for responsible care of creation, for workers & those who seek work, for teachers & students, for migrants, refugees and all who suffer in poverty. Pray with Charity Wisdom and seasonal reflections from our founders and friends.

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.
