About Religious Life

How do religious communities differ?

Founders had a specific spirit or charism they wanted to develop in a community. Although most religious communities are alike in their concern to live the gospel message and serve others, the charism of each group determines what ministries they have; whether they wear full traditional habits, simple habits such as the Daughters, or more contemporary clothes; how they live community life; and how they pray.

The charism of the Daughters of Charity can be expressed as “given to God, in community, for the service of those who are poor.”

There are so many communities. How do I know which one to choose?

By spending time with Sisters in their ministry and community settings, you will know which community God has for you. The Daughters of Charity serve the poor, live in community and deepen their relationship with God in prayer. They are humble, simple, loving women who collaborate with others to assist those most in need. If this spirit matches yours, consider joining us.
