“Charity is certainly
greater than any rule.
Moreover, all rules
must lead to charity.”

We affirm our Sisters of Charity Vision Statement to choose to live simply in a complex world committed to the healing of our global home. We believe that God continues to create the universe in the present moment and calls us to be life-giving and creative participants in the ongoing life on Earth. We believe Earth is our teacher. We believe in safeguarding Earth’s regenerative capabilities. We are called in humility to reverence the beauty and gifts of Earth, in simplicity to recognize our kinship with Earth, and in charity to sustainably protect and restore the integrity of Earth’s ecological systems. Allowing loving trust to shape all of our relationships, we dare to risk a caring response.
