In the spirit of Elizabeth Seton we are action women, dedicated to serving where the needs are greatest. For 190 years we have been about responding to the needs of the Church and our ever-changing world. Our Sisters can be found working with migrants in Colorado and refugees on the border; reaching out to AIDS victims in California; working as pastoral ministers locally in the Archdiocese; staffing clinics in Ohio and Texas; and educating adults for life. The Charity spirit is captured in our community motto: The love of Christ urges us.
Services provided through the Motherhouse campus offices nurture, challenge and inform. Available programs offer a particular concern for building a more just society, respect for the Earth and the environment, and hands-on experiences with direct service to the poor. Those desiring to become a whole person can be served here.
