“Prudence consists in
speaking about important
matters only and not
relating a lot of trifles
that are not worth saying.

St. Louis de Marillac

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.
