"At times when I might have
been met with difficulties,
Providence suddenly placed
in my path people who could
help me.”

St. Louise de Marillac

 

Our Mission

Urged by the love of Christ and in the spirit of our founder, Elizabeth Ann Seton, we Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati strive to live Gospel values. We choose to act justly, to build loving relationships, to share our resources with those in need, and to care for all creation.
Chapter 2011

Charism Statement

True to the spirit of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton, Margaret Cecilia George, and all who share our heritage, we Sisters of Charity are called to be faithfilled women of the Church. Like Elizabeth we are called to be vitalized by Scripture and Eucharist; with her we are called to fidelity to the Church, to reliance on the Spirit, and to life through love and friendship. We vow our lives to our God with whom we walk in humility, simplicity, and charity. As pilgrims we pray for the wisdom to know the needs of our sisters and brothers and we dare to risk a caring response.

Vision Statement

Because we Sisters of Charity dwell in this house of love and encounter God, we commit ourselves to this Vision statement:

As a community of charity, living the gospel as expressed in the charism of Elizabeth Seton and Margaret George, we will strive to be persons who:

  • choose to live simply in a complex world committed to the healing of our global home;
  • embrace cultural expansion in membership and ministry;
  • learn from and are in solidarity with the poor;
  • risk being prophetic in church and society;
  • journey together toward wholeness.

We make this commitment imbued with a deep faith in the active presence of God and strengthened by prayer, friendship and community.
