The Sisters of Charity of Nazareth are an international Congregation, impelled by the love of Christ, in the tradition of St. Vincent de Paul and the pioneer spirit of Catherine Spalding. They are committed to work for justice in solidarity with oppressed peoples, especially the economically poor and women, and to care for the earth.
Impelled by the Love of Christ – SCN in Mission
The year 2012 marks the bicentennial anniversary of the foundation of the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth. As a tribute to these sisters, the Sisters of Charity Federation offers a reflection on aspects of the Vincentian charism that permeated their 200 years of ministry.
Trust in Divine Providence
Congregations formed in the spirit of Saints Vincent and Louise are characterized by boundless trust in the Providence of God and an unwavering commitment to respond to ‘what is before them.’ In the early 19th century, the immediate needs facing Catherine Spalding and her companions in rural Kentucky were education, care for orphans and for the sick.
