The website of the Sisters of Charity of New York writes… “The goals set for the Conference, held on September 29, 2012 in Smith Hall at the College of Mount Saint Vincent, were to strengthen the network of Sponsored Ministry colleagues, to reflect on the breadth and depth of the ministries, and to focus on the spirituality of leadership. Ministries represented were:

  • College of Mount Saint Vincent
  • Elizabeth Seton Pediatric Center
  • Elizabeth Seton Women’s Center
  • Fox House
  • Life Experience and Faith Sharing
  • The New York Foundling
  • POTS (Part of the Solution)
  • Sisters Hill Farm
  • Saint Joseph’s Medical Center
  • Sisters of Charity Housing Development Corporation
  • Sisters of Charity Multi-Service Center‚ Casa de Esperanza

The Conference was facilitated by Sr. Mary Persico, IHM. Working from documents prepared by each sponsored ministry, Sr. Mary noted the strengths and challenges common to all the ministries present. Using metaphors, she underscored the fact that the Sisters of Charity ministries have provided compassionate care and service to those in need for almost 200 years and in the hands of future generations, that tradition will continue.
