From the Border

in El Paso, Texas.

We remain ever conscious of our sisters and brothers on the U.S./Mexico border – U.S. residents serving as volunteers, those from Central America who are seeking asylum, those walking through Mexico currently, and our own Sisters and Associates who are responding to the needs they find there. We are assured that all will be met with respect, compassion and love. In the words of our SC Charism Statement: “As pilgrims we pray for the wisdom to know the needs of our sisters and brothers and we dare to risk a caring response.” Sharing some of her learnings from her recent experiences is S. Janet Gildea. READ MORE

Tending Your Soul

God works in mysterious ways. Each one of us lives and witnesses to “God’s voice” in our lives minute by minute. In this “Tending Your Soul” video SC Associate S. Karen Elliott, C.PP.S., discusses the importance of teamwork and community – and how we are stronger together than as one.

Future of Charity Gathers in New Orleans

As we conclude National Vocation Awareness Week, we celebrate the Future of Charity. Eight members of the Future of Charity and one discerner gathered at the House of Charity in New Orleans, Louisiana, last weekend for fellowship and faith sharing. Guiding their prayer and conversations was the theme of self-awareness and identity. As they listened to Jesus ask his disciples, Who do people say that I am? and Who do you say that I am? (Mk 8:27-30), participants asked themselves: Who do I say I am? and Who do we say we are?

We are women of courage.
We are generative co-creators.
We are bridge-builders and seekers of peace.
We are Sisters of Charity in a global world.
We are women held, formed, and challenged in community.
We are able to see the light in the darkness.
We are women vowed to God.
We are human.
We are love.
