Sisters of Charity of Nazareth

Bicentennial Prayer

God of the unfolding universe, we, SCNs and Associates,
thank you for the abundant blessings you have poured on us
throughout these 200 years of our Journey of Faith.
May our praise and thanksgiving continue to ring out
from the Kalahari of Africa, the Himalayas of Nepal,
the Ganges of India, the crystal waters of Belize,
and the mountains and plains of the United States
as we contemplate the richness of our history
with its diverse races, cultures and ministries.
As we follow in the footsteps of Catherine Spalding and Vincent de Paul,
  • may we faithfully live our charism of charity
  • may we respond to your invitation to spend our lives being your compassionate presence to those who are poor, women and the voiceless in our world today.
  • may we strengthen the bonds of community through mutual encouragement and forgiveness.
We remember with gratitude and we celebrate in joy.
