Chapter Statement

In the summer of 2014 Sisters of Charity – Halifax developed a directional statement to guide the Congregation for the coming years.

It reads:

“From this place this we call home how will I live Charity today …  Because it matters!

“Urged by our charism of Charity, we accept our call to an all-embracing spirit of hospitality in our relationships with one another, with all our sisters and brothers and with all creation.   We choose to do this in a spirit of caring collaboration with others, especially with the Vincentian Family.”

For insight into the theology of hospitality, click here to download an excerpt from Integritas, the published talks that issued from a round-table discussion at Boston College in the spring of 2013. While the purpose of the discussion was related to campus life, Aurelie Hagstrom’s theology of hospitality is helpful for us as we live into our Chapter statement.
