About Sister of Charity - Halifax
Marillac Residence, 125 Oakland Street, Wellesley Hills, MA 02481, US
Corporately and individually, we strive to develop a sensitivity toward those whom the world oppresses, to right in great ways or small the injustices we see around us, to heal the wounds of the embittered, to speak peace to the troubled, to urge the mighty to right wrongs that we may bring the compassion of Christ to all whose lives we touch." (From the Constitutions 43)
We, Sisters of Charity - Halifax are a congregation of consecrated women sharing the gift of a call to give joyful witness to Love. Associates are men and women who recognize the charism of charity within themselves and share in our mission and goals. On our Facebook page you will find news, stories and inspiration about our congregation and the causes we embrace. We invite you to engage with us so that we might be mutually enriched.
