The Sisters of Charity of New York are committed to healping end the tragedy of human trafficking. Yesterday, January 11, was National Human Trafficking Awareness Day. In union with those who are committed to this fight, we are asking all to join us in a daily prayer, which will continue until February 8th. Together we can make a difference.
St. Josephine Bakhita was born in southern Sudan in 1869. As a young girl, she was kidnapped and sold into slavery. She was treated brutally by her captors as she was sold and resold. She did not remember her name; Bakhita, which means “fortunate one,” was the name given to her by her kidnappers.

We, the Sisters here at Kittay and the ALP are praying this prayer each morning before Mass for the special intention of that day. The Handmaids, the Missionaries and several of laity join with us.
Also this past Saturday, the Companions made a commitment to join the congregation in this daily prayer.
Thanks for the Call to pray together
