Ministry of the Arts
We, the Sisters of Charity of New York, have been drawn to bring Christ to others. As artists we have expressed God’s face of compassion, gentleness and mercy through liturgical dance, music, writing, painting, poetry and sculpture.
In our prayer we feel touched by the imagination of the Divine Artist and continue to stand ready to proclaim God’s creative bounty by our works of art.
“…What we have seen and heard we proclaim in turn to you…”
1 John 1:3
