“Acting well our part in
present difficulties is
the only way to ensure
the peace of futurity.” 

St. Elizabeth Ann Seton

History of Associates

The Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati are joined by Associates who are lay women and men and reside throughout the United States. The Sister/Associate relationship was established in 1973 so that individuals could partner with the Sisters in responding to the Gospel in the spirit of St. Elizabeth Bayley Seton.
