Future of Charity

As January draws to a close some might be interested learning what is on the minds of the bloggers of the Future of Charity and the “younger, newer vowed members or women in formation with religious congregations from the Sisters of Charity Federation.  ”

In various ways they ask…

Will you journey with us?

Let’s Wake Up the World together!

We hope, through this blog, to communicate our love of God and of religious life.  We hope to draw others ever more deeply into “the beauty of God.”  We hope to challenge all to a more fervent commitment to the Gospel.  We hope to grow closer as a Future of Charity community.  We desire to generate hope and joy in our Charity congregations (and others).

And, we hope to be a place of accompaniment and encounter for discerners to freely explore what is stirring in their hearts.  We offer to you an honest picture of our lives as younger, newer religious. And we invite your comments, thoughts, and questions.

More about them…

The Future of Charity is a group that has formed to build relationships among the younger, newer members of the Federation. As our congregations grow smaller, we recognize an exciting opportunity for collaboration!  In August 2014, our Future of Charity group gathered for the first time at the House of Charity in New Orleans, Louisiana.  We spent time getting to know one another and dreaming about how we might journey together.  One idea that emerged was this blog.  We are thrilled that it has taken shape, by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.

This project is one way that we choose to respond to Pope Francis’ call for the Year of Consecrated Life: Wake Up the World!
