SCN Lay Mission Volunteer Program
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.

Sister Luke Boiarski
The Sisters of Charity of Nazareth have a long tradition of responding in times of disaster. Historically Sisters have responded to flooding in Louisville, the yellow fever epidemic, monsoons in India, a hurricane in Belize, and an earthquake in Nepal. Continuing in this spirit, the SCN Disaster Relief Program invites volunteers to offer spiritual and physical support to persons experiencing a disaster. Sisters and volunteers respond in the same spirit of Vincent de Paul with reverence for each person and witness to God’s presence in the midst of adversity. The Disaster Relief Program provides an opportunity to put faith into action.
