Sisters of Charity of Saint Elizabeth The Direction Statement of the General Assembly of 2015 We, the Sisters of Charity of Saint Elizabeth, with deep faith and trust in Divine Providence, seek healing for our world through the transforming love of God. Impelled by boundless Charity, we strive to collaborate with others to promote right relationships and the common good of all people and creation. Energized by the fire of Charity, we, as bearers of hope, accompany people in need while advocating for systemic change. We commit ourselves to the conversion and transformation necessary to make God’s love known in the world.
As a Congregation we challenge ourselves to sustain the mission by:
- acting with conscious awareness of our interdependence with one another and all creation
- practicing consistent advocacy for human rights, right relationships, peace and nonviolence
- embracing a simple lifestyle and a responsible stewardship of our resources
- engaging current and future generations in the charism and energy of Charity
