Support Our Mission
We Need You
The Sisters of Charity of Our Lady, Mother of the Church strive to serve the people of God with a spirit of heartfelt simplicity. We embrace our religious profession as the driving force in our lives. It is our “vehicle” for bringing Christ to all those we meet. With our days firmly rooted in prayer we are able to reach out and bring Christ to those in need, and we are grateful for your support that helps make this possible.
Every Person is Called to Live For Christ
Mother Marie Alma Lafond
We are indebted to our Foundress, Mother Marie Alma Lafond (American Congregation in 1970), and our Founder, Bishop John Zwijsen (Original Congregation in 1832), for their generous response to the Holy Spirit. We thank them for stepping out into uncharted waters and providing a way for each of our Sisters to guide so many others to Christ.
As with our Founders, the first step must always be rooted in prayer. We invite you to pray about what God is asking of you this day. Is He asking you to become more involved with our Sisters? To support us in some way?
Bishop Zwijsen once said, “You are doing an act of Charity which is very meritorious when you pray for others.” So, may we both start there. Let us pray for one another, and in this way, you will take the first step in joining in our mission.

Your financial support helps us continue our ministries
Whether we are educating our youth, caring for the sick and the aging, caring for our own dear elderly Sisters, or preparing our young Sisters for serving Christ in the poor, it is your support that makes it possible. We thank you for taking the time to learn more about our Sisters and to learn that what you do makes a difference and touches the hearts of those in need.
In all that you do, serve Him, and if the Spirit so guides you, may you serve with us.
