On Dec. 17, 2010 the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth initiated Joe Antony to the SCN Associate program. He is the first person in Gurgaon, Delhi, to join as an SCNA. SCNs Beena Chirackal, Agnes Tudu, and Bridget Kappalumackal were on hand to witness the event.
Mr. Antony is a neighbor to the Sisters and attends Mass daily with his wife. The SCNs in Gurgaon welcome him to live out his baptismal call within the tradition of spirituality and mission of Vincent de Paul, Louise de Marillac, and Catherine Spalding.
The SCN Family includes an important group of lay people who make an extra commitment to make a real difference in the world. We call them SCN Associates. They are men and women of all faiths and backgrounds who commit:
- To living out the SCN Mission in their own lives
- To deepen their spirituality
- To build community with other SCN Associates and SCNs
- To reach out in compassionate service to others in the tradition of Vincent de Paul, Louise de Marillac and Catherine Spalding.
