Charity Wisdom — Ordinary Time
September–October 2020

In this time of continuing challenges, we pray for hope and healing for those who suffer, for resilience and compassion to serve those in need, and for trust in God’s loving Providence. We invite you to join us in prayer.

The Death of George Floyd and Racism in the U.S.

The Sisters of Charity of New York stand in solidarity with all who are enraged and distressed by the cruel and senseless killing of George Floyd.

Charity Wisdom in a Time of Shared Crisis

With the Covid-19 pandemic, the world has become very small. Truly we are citizens of the world, as Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton said of herself. Pray with Charism Wisdom from our Charity saints and a special reflection for this challenging time. We invite you to join us in prayer.

The Sister of Charity, by Pietro GagliardiSisters of Charity of New York

Now in our third century of living lives of love. 

The Sisters of Charity of New York is a community of Roman Catholic women religious who share in the ongoing mission of Jesus. We do so by responding to the signs of the times in the spirit of St. Vincent de Paul and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton. We strive to reveal God’s love in our lives and through our varied ministries with and for all in need, especially those living in poverty.
