The Sisters of Charity of New York are an ecclesial community, called to share in the mission of Jesus, in the spirit of St. Vincent de Paul and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton. Our structures of government exist to facilitate this mission:

  • by challenging us to live the ideals and to follow the vision of the Gospel
  • by encouraging and developing Congregational responses to the needs of the Church and the world
  • by providing for the responsible administration of the material resources of the Congregation
  • by providing for the growth of the members of the Congregation

Leadership structures foster communication and collaboration within the Congregation and in our relationship with the Church and society.
