This year the Sisters of Charity, Halifax celebrate 125 Years of Faithful Service in the Archdiocese of Boston. In gratitude to God for the gift of these years, a special Mass is being held on Sunday, November 18th, 2 p.m. at St. Agatha’s Church in Milton.
Founded by Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton, the ministry of the Sisters of Charity in the Boston Archdiocese has made a profound difference in the lives of countless women, men and children, especially the poor, the suffering and the marginalized.
In Boston and in surrounding communities the work of the Sisters of Charity spans diverse aspects in the field of education, parish and hospital ministry, social services and elder care in numerous agencies and learning centers.
As an international organization the Sisters of Charity have missions in the U.S., Canada, Bermuda and Peru and are a vital presence in the villages of Africa.
The Sisters are deeply committed to the burgeoning problem of women and children who are trafficked; to the care of the planet so that it can provide for future generations and to systemic change, seeking out the root causes of injustice and oppression where-ever it exists.
As they begin their next 125 years of service, the words of St. Vincent de Paul energize them to move forward as they meet the needs of all people where-ever they are: “Go to the poor. You will find God”.
