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
