Our Mission

The mission of the Sisters of Charity – Halifax is to give joyful witness to love: the love of God, of one another, and of all persons.

“Corporately and individually, we strive to develop a sensitivity toward those whom the world oppresses, to right in great ways or small the injustices we see around us, to heal the wounds of the embittered, to speak peace to the troubled, to urge the mighty to right wrongs.” (From the Constitutions)

We live our mission through loving presence, through prayer, through ministry to others.

Our charism is rooted in the tradition of Saints Elizabeth Ann Seton, Vincent de Paul and Louise de Marillac.
