Joyful Witness to Love

In 2024, the Sisters of Charity will mark the momentous occasion of 175 years of joyful witness to love: the love of God, of one another, and of all persons. Through 175 years of responding to the cries of the poor, racial justice, and the climate crisis, collectively our ministries have been possible with the support and partnership of our generous benefactors.

From tuition support for first generation college students, to resources aiding migrants fleeing their troubled homeland, to water projects in areas ravaged by the climate crisis, and resources to support women and children fleeing domestic violence—our work is far from over and there has never been a greater need to continue our mission.

Throughout 2024, we will celebrate our 175 years of history by sharing stories of our Sisters and the Congregation, and the impact of our mission in Canada, the USA and globally. You can find the 175 years link on our website or follow along with the weekly profiles on our Facebook page.

Loved and energized by the One who calls us, our charism of charity compels us to respond to the cries of the poor, support efforts to combat climate change, and shape community initiatives to end systemic racism. We also support the needs of our elder Sisters, whose wisdom and tireless charism still inspires.

Join us by supporting our Joyful Witness to Love campaign, and become a part of our collective mission of change.
We are grateful for your generous support.
