Sisters of Charity of St. Elizabeth (S.C.) ” The purpose
and spirit of the Community is embodied in its symbol,
the pelican, who feeds her young with her own substance.
In Christian history the pelican is a symbol of Christ in his
life of unconditional giving. He is the source and model
of love for us.” We render Christ every temporal and
spiritual service in our power, “in the persons of the poor,
either sick, prisoners, insane, or those who through shame
would conceal their necessities.” We are called to a life
of giving of our talents, our resources, ourselves, without
condition and without reservation. In the tradition of St.
Vincent de Paul the Sisters of Charity participate in the
mission of the Church fundamentally through ministry
supported and nourished by prayer and vowed life in
community. LOOK FOR THE LIFE YOU WERE BORN
TO LIVE! LIVE BOUNDLESS CHARITY IN YOUR LIFE

Sisters of Christian Charity (S.C.C.) The Sisters of
Christian Charity, an international, active apostolic
congregation exist to live and make visible the love
of Christ today. The charism of Blessed Pauline von
Mallinckrodt, foundress, impels the sisters to be
women of deep faith who will refresh the millennium
with “joyous, youthful enthusiasm and energy, the
fruit of intimacy with Jesus in the Eucharist,” (S.C.C.
Documents). Like Mary, the community seeks to be
open to the formative power of the Holy Spirit, which
transforms it into the bread and wine of Christ’s love.
Pauline’s Eucharistic vision leads the Sisters into the
future as a community of love, a people commissioned
to bring “good news to the poor . . . sight to the blind
. . . liberty to captives” (Luke 4: 18). Contact (Eastern

Berry, cp; monk, scholar, cultural historian and geologian.
Rooted in the long lineage of our tradition we engage with
it at this new “Moment of Grace,” as it enters into its cos-mological/planetary phase. We do this by understanding
ourselves within the larger context of the Universe Story
and by celebrating Earth as a Single Sacred Community.
Here at our monastery we place the ancient monastic
values of prayer and silence, simplicity and scholarship,
manual labor, organic farming and the cultivation of the
arts at the service of the entire Earth community. We
would like to invite women with founding energy and a
passion for the healing and protection of the Earth Community to join us in this grand venture. If interested please
