“Friendship has the skill and
observation of the best physician,
the diligence and vigilance of the
best nurse and the tenderness
and patience of the best mother.”

Abolishing the Death Penalty

Abolishing the Death Penalty

Once again Sisters living at the Motherhouse participated in an action to help end the death penalty. The Sisters wrote postcards to their Ohio congressional representative and senator, which will be delivered by the Intercommunity Justice and Peace Center. We hear Pope Francis’ call  to “all people of good will to mobilize for the abolition of the death penalty throughout the world.” Renewed action seems in order and overdue.

Welcome, Karina

Welcome, Karina

The Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati welcomed Karina Montes Ayala as an Affiliate during a vespers prayer service on Sunday, Oct. 30 in the Motherhouse chapel. The Affiliate Rite of Welcome marks a woman’s official entrance into the congregation and is a one-to-two-year period of gradual involvement in the Congregation’s life and ministries and a gradual transition from lay life to religious life. Karina will continue to live in community at Visitation House, engage in ministry, and have experiences that immerse her more fully into the communal life and into intercongregational religious life. We are excited to bless Karina for this next step on the journey!
