Vincent and Louise – Croatia to Oceania

by | Sep 19, 2013 | Sisters of Charity, Vincentian Family

Croatian SistersFormed and upheld and by their spiritual founders St. Vincent de Paul and  St Mother Louise de Marillac in spirit, charism and Holy Rules, the Sisters of Charity of Zagreb brought the flame of Vincentian charism first to Croatia and the countries of the southeastern Europe, later to the Americas and recently to Oceania.

Wherever the sisters have gone, they have offered education and care for the local population by means of numerous educational and formational institutions. Despite the dangers and historical turbulence in some countries, the sisters were spreading their activities through their charitable and missionary service.

Today, the Congregation has 767 sisters, out of which 669 are in Europe, 88 in South America, 6 in North America and 4 in the Solomon Islands.
