Directional Statement Chapter 2016
“…we are called
ever to renew and recreate
our works and our witness
uniting justice and charity in our lives
as servants of the poor.”
--SCL Constitution, Norm 6
We, the sisters of Charity of Leavenworth, affirm our call to communion and mission as women of the Church. In the spirit of our heritage, we continue to seek the path of charity and justice in our day.
Impelled by our baptismal commitment, we claim as our own the prophetic mission of Jesus and our call to discipleship.
In collaboration with those who also embrace Gospel values,
we affirm our evolving charism and re-envision our ministry
and sponsored works to sustain our mission.
Mindful of the fragility of the earth and of the suffering of God’s people, especially the exploited and marginalized, we commit ourselves to address these critical needs and their systemic causes.
