Jesus Christ came “to bring the good news to the poor, to proclaim liberty to captives and to the blind new sight, to set the downtrodden free, to proclaim the Lord’s year of favour” (Luke 4:18-29). The mission of the Sisters of Charity of Saint Elizabeth is to proclaim and live this Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Through Baptism and Confirmation each Christian is incorporated into Christ and called to continue his work. This is the mission given to the entire Church. In the tradition of Saint Vincent de Paul our Congregation participates in the mission of the Church fundamentally through ministry supported and nourished by prayer and vowed life in community. From the beginning our ministry has encompassed commitments in education, health care, and pastoral and social services.
