Charity Wisdom — November 2020

Amid the ongoing challenges of these times, November calls us to thankfulness for God’s gifts and to communion with one another and those who have gone before us. Find inspiration in Charity Wisdom from our saints and friends.

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.

My Life Matters.

Team Members from Life Experience Faith Sharing Associates, a sponsored ministry of the Sisters of Charity Ministry Network, share their personal experience of George Floyd’s death and racism in their lives.

The Mission Continues: Who is My Neighbor?

For over 200 years, the Sisters of Charity have advocated for our neighbor — those most in need of our love and support. Today we continue to serve our neighbor through our sponsored ministries.

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.
