Vows of the Daughters of Charity

by | Mar 25, 2022 | Daughters of Charity, Formation

Co-founders St. Vincent and St. Louise established the annual and renewable vows of the Daughters of Charity as a progressive confirmation of their particular charism. The Daughters were not cloistered but worked among the people, but they did not identify as laity since they had a consecration to God, and neither were they a Religious Order.

Each year a new YES is pronounced in freedom to the vocation to which God calls them.

“One is not a Daughter of Charity because of making vows, but one makes vows because one is a Daughter of Charity and to always be so more perfectly.”

– Michel Lloret, Echoes of the Company, September-October 1985
