Sisters of Charity of Nazareth
The Sisters of Charity of Nazareth are an international Congregation in a multicultural world. Impelled by the love of Christ, in the tradition of Vincent de Paul and the pioneer spirit of Catherine Spalding, Sisters and Associates are committed to work for justice in solidarity with oppressed peoples, especially the economically poor and women, and to care for the earth. They risk their lives and resources, both personally and corporately, as they engage in diverse ministries in carrying out this mission.
The Sisters of Charity of Nazareth promote the dignity and equality of women and other oppressed people in Church and in society.
Volunteer with the Sisters
Sponsored by the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth, we invite lay women and men to a cross-cultural partnership with people, especially the oppressed, economically poor and marginalized, primarily in the areas in which Sisters, Associates and/or members of the Sisters of Charity Federation are called to mission.
