The Sisters of Charity Federation:
- is made up of 11 congregations of Sisters of Charity + 2 provinces of Daughters of Charity from the U.S. and Canada
- has a character and spirit in the tradition of Charity founded by St. Vincent de Paul, St. Louise de Marillac and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton
- traces their roots to the first sisterhood native to the U.S., the Sisters of Charity of Saint Joseph’s, founded in 1809 by St. Elizabeth near Emmitsburg, Maryland
Impelled by Christ’s love and joined together in the mission of Charity, we, the Sisters of Charity Federation, respond to the cries of those who are poor and marginalized.
Members of the Federation serve throughout the United States and Canada and also have sisters serving in: Bermuda, Italy, Siberia, Botswana, Ethiopia, Fiji Islands, El Salvador, Bolivia, Ecuador.
