Who We Are

About Sisters of Charity
The Religious Sisters of Charity were founded in Ireland, in 1815, by Mary Aikenhead. Our Sisters work in education, healthcare and on human rights issues. Our fourth vow is 'service of the poor'. We have convents in eight countries, on four continents.

Vocations

Most calls to religious life are not dramatic or direct. It may be a desire for a deeper relationship with God or wanting to find a deeper purpose in life. To discover God's dream for us, there is a need to reflect on our desires, talents and personalities.
