Daughters of Charity
Help is Our Main Goal
"The main purpose for which God has called the Daughters of Charity and brought them together is to honor our Lord Jesus Christ as the source and model of all charity, serving Him corporally and spiritually in the person of the poor." Constitutions pg. 28.
We are an international group of women in the Catholic Church, who follow the gospel vision of St. Vincent de Paul and St. Louise de Marillac, giving our lives totally to God, in Community for the service of persons living in poverty in an evangelical spirit of humility, simplicity and charity.
For administrative purpose, our worldwide Community is divided into Provinces. Each Province has its own leadership team which is responsible for the administration and development of the works of the Province and for the care and well being of the members of the Community. Each Province is made up of Local communities of between 3 - 15 Sisters who work in various services in a particular area.
