       In April, the Sisters of Charity of Saint Elizabeth, shared the feelings of horror and grief of the world as we watched the devastating fire of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris.  Paris holds a special place in our hearts as the home of our spiritual family founded there by Saint Vincent de Paul.  Once again we are deeply grieved by the ongoing fires raging in the Amazon, the green cathedral at the heart of the Americas.  Home to many indigenous peoples, a region rich in biodiversity, a place of incredible beauty – the destruction of the rainforest is a crisis of planetary proportions. We echo the words of the Episcopal Conference of Latin America, “If the Amazon suffers, the world suffers.”
       We commit ourselves, in collaboration with the Sisters of Charity Federation Nongovernmental Organization at the United Nations, to advocate for the rights of indigenous peoples and for protection of the Amazon region. We have made a contribution to an organization dedicated to protecting the Amazon rainforest and we urge others to do the same. Conscious that much Amazonian deforestation is due to land clearance for grazing cattle, we commit ourselves to moderate our consumption of meat.  We look with hope to the upcoming Special Assembly of the Synod of Bishops for the Pan-Amazon Region, October- 6 to 27, 2019, Amazonia: New Paths for the Church and for an Integral Ecology. May the world unite around the goal of Pope Francis, “to find new ways for the evangelization of that portion of the People of God, especially the indigenous, often forgotten and without a perspective of a good future, also for the cause of the crisis of the Amazonian forest, lung of fundamental importance for our planet.”               
The Leadership of the Sisters of Charity of Saint Elizabeth


Through her ministry to the people of Haiti, Sister Dianne Moore has come to know and to cherish many Haitian proverbs.  One of these, “piti piti nou rive,” is translated as “little by little, we arrive.”  This proverb might be a fitting byline for Sister Dianne’s years of ministry as a Sister of Charity.  With humility and a deep desire to listen and learn, Sister Dianne walks in solidarity with people in great need as little by little, she brings light and hope.  READ MORE
