Oct. 27, 1947: Federation of Sisters of Charity in the Vincentian and Setonian Tradition

This week we’ll be celebrating the Sisters of Charity Federation, established on October 27, 1947 to provide mutual support to one another in living their mission of Charity in the modern world. For a collection of resources about the Sisters of Charity, click here. From their website, “The Federation honors the particular history of each member congregation and their common charism rooted in the founding spirit of Louise de Marillac and Vincent de Paul […] In instructions and meditations Elizabeth Seton reminded her companions of the significance of their name, Sisters of Charity, exhorting them to be faith-filled women of mission. ‘No personal inconvenience should prevent Sisters of Charity [from] doing what duty and charity require’ (Council, August 20 1814).”
