DIRECTION STATEMENT OF

THE SISTERS OF CHARITY OF SAINT ELIZABETH GENERAL ASSEMBLY 2019

We, the Sisters of Charity of Saint Elizabeth, with deep faith and trust in Divine Providence, seek healing for our world through the transforming love of God. Impelled by Boundless Charity, we strive to collaborate with others to promote right relationships and the common good of all people and creation. Energized by the fire of Charity, we, as bearers of hope, accompany people in need while advocating for systemic change.

 

We commit ourselves to the conversion and transformation necessary to make God’s love known in the world. As a Congregation we challenge ourselves to sustain the mission by: 

 

  • Acting with conscious awareness of our interdependence with one another and all creation.

  • Practicing consistent advocacy for human rights, right relationships, peace and nonviolence.

  • Embracing a simple lifestyle and a responsible stewardship of our resources.

  • Engaging current and future generations in the charism and energy of Charity.

WHAT'S NEW?

Tuesday, December 1 is #GivingTuesday—the annual global day of giving.  This year for our #GivingTuesday campaign, we are asking friends to help us acquire the technology we need to keep our Sisters connected.  Donations will enable us to complete the work needed to live stream services from Holy Family Chapel and will help us upgrade our technology to keep Sisters fully engaged in ministry and connected with family, friends, and the community.

 

Please help promote this important campaign. Our #GivingTuesday campaign page can be reached by texting SCCONNECT to 41444 or by visiting or donation page.

MY LIFE MATTERS

There are events in our life that have the power to move our hearts and inspire change. The murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis by police officers on May 25, 2020, is one such

life-altering event.
