Sisters of Charity
  • Welcome!

    Greetings and prayers for God's blessings of love, joy and peace from the Sisters of Charity of Our Lady Mother of the Church.

    Our prayer for you who view this Website is that your mind and spirit be open so as to hear the gentle invitation of the Lord and to follow in His footsteps by proclaiming the Gospel message in word and deed.

    The call to serve God as a Religious is truly a sublime gift. In the Gospel of St. John the Lord reminds us:
    "You have not chosen Me; I have chosen you." We pray that you will listen attentively to what God is asking of you. He may be calling you to be His Bride, an invitation that has been yours from all eternity. Respond, then, with a generous heart, so that your life may bear fruit to the profit of the whole Mystical Body.

  • Mission Statement

    As Sisters of Charity of Our Lady Mother of the Church we embrace our two-fold mission of sanctity and service. In a spirit of simplicity we aspire to live a life rooted in the Gospel, in imitation of Mary and expressed by prayer, charity, self-denial and loving submission.

    We devote ourselves to the works of charity and, as true daughters in the heart of the Church, we serve others through the apostolates of education, caring for the sick, the aging and the poor, wherever there is a need.

  • “Lord, help me to make time today to serve you in those who are most in need of encouragement or assistance.” St. Vincent de Paul

Ecclesial Women Faithful to the Missionary Impulse of the Church

Celebrating the Year of Consecrated Life: By Mother Marie Julie Saegaert, SCMC This year’s National Assembly held at the Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows in Belleville, Illinois, was a time of extraordinary grace.

Teaching ‘Feminine Genius’

“Education is central to our charism,” said Mother Marie Julie Saegaert, the order’s superior general and the secretary of the Council of Major Superiors of Women Religious.

Mothers are the ones... Read More
