Deus Caritas est. God is Love. In his love for us the Father calls us together as Sisters of Charity of Jesus and Mary. He unites us in the Heart of his Son Jesus, whom he sent into the world to reveal his love. (Constitution article 2)
This is our specific mission that we are called to reveal God’s love to all especially to the poor and the abandoned.
We draw life and inspiration from the spiritual riches we inherit from our Founder, Reverend Peter Joseph Triest and Mother Placide, the co-founderess and the valiant pioneers, according to the spirit of St. Vincent de Paul and that of St. Bernard. Their faith and absolute trust in Providence – Deus providebit – lives on in us and animates us still.
"SCJM, as a woman, listen and dare to be prophetic. Do whatever He tells you." (John 2, 5)
