Feast of St. Nicholas – December 6

As we revisit the legend of St. Nicholas this year, we are reminded that each of us are created in goodness, in God’s image. We are challenged to act out of that goodness in our small actions and in the significant deeds of our lives, both individually and communally.

This Is the People Who Long to See Your Face

This year as we reflect and live the messages of Advent, we can get a glimpse of our destination. In the unsettledness of our daily lives and the chaos in our current world, we choose to go deeper these Advent days.

From the Border


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 Associate Patrice Harty.
