Daughters/Sisters of Charity thread


#1

This thread is for any and all religious institutes who follow St. Vincent de Paul and St. Louise de Marillac. I read somewhere that there were 60 institutes (or more) who followed Vincentian spirituality. These institutes were founded after 1650.

They used to have a convent at a parish I belonged to and I made friends with some. They are lovely sisters. They are a bit different from other orders in that they take simple vows every year. There are also some in Evansville, Indiana and Emmitsberg, Maryland. I believe the big hat Sally Field wore in the “Flying Nun” TV series was a takeoff on their old habit–it was pretty similar. But now they have a simple short veil.

Oh, I love these Sisters. Sr. Blandina came to New Mexico and started many generations of children who loved these sisters.
I was educated by them, and LOVED them so much!
The Sister who taught me piano was named Sister Winifred Keyes,
I miss her so much, Rest in peace Sister Winifred!

Thanks for the list!

It is so interesting to see how each community varies in living out their vocation under the umbrella of Sisters of Charity.


#6

Actually, a number of Charity communities take perpetual vows. The ones from NY and NJ, for example, as well as the Nazareths and Leavenworths. I believe it is only the Daughters who take annual vows.


#7

Ulterior motives. :D. Trying to populate a list for our emerging Charity charism. I’m only one person and know of only about 20 of the 60 Vincentian communites/congregations worldwide. Was hoping for some help!

The Canadian Sisters of Charity were founded in the 1700s by a widow, Marguerite d’Youville. They were known as the Grey Nuns.
