Thanksgiving for our vocation

In this video for National Vocation Awareness Week, Sisters talk about what religious life is like for them.

National Vocation Awareness Week

Sisters of Charity of Nazareth are celebrating National Vocation Awareness Week, Nov. 3-9; established by the USCCB to foster a culture of vocations for religious life, priesthood, and the deaconate and to offer prayers and support for those considering these vocations.

Sister Act

The Sisters of Charity of Nazareth and everyone in attendance enjoyed the lively and professional production when they attended Presentation Academy’s musical production of “Sister Act”.

Transforming lives

It is hard to believe 72 years have passed since the first six Sisters, impelled by the love of Christ, traveled in 1947 from Kentucky to Mokama, India. The Sisters quickly established Nazareth Hospital, the first mission of the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth in India. Could they have imagined that seven decades later the same campus would be teeming with ministry in so many and varied forms?

Mission

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.
