Partners in Charity
Vincentian Family connection
The Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth are part of the worldwide Vincentian family -- living the charism of St. Vincent de Paul and St. Louise de Marillac.
Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth are members of the Charity Federation, a group of communities of women religious who trace their roots to Vincent de Paul, Louise de Marillac and Mother Elizabeth Ann Seton.
The National Shrine
of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton
In 1809, Elizabeth Ann Seton founded the Sisters of Charity of St. Joseph’s in Emmitsburg, Md., the first community for religious women established in the United States. Her legacy now includes religious congregations in the United States and Canada – including many Sisters of Charity – whose members work to address the unmet needs of people living in poverty. Mother Seton was the first citizen born in the United States to be given the title of “Saint.” Her remains are entombed in Emmitsburg in the Basilica at the National Shrine that bears her name.
