150 years of Blessings

For 150 years our Congregation, the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word, San Antonio, has served thousands of people, especially those who are economically poor and vulnerable, through a variety of ministries including education, health care, pastoral and social services.

As we celebrate the Sesquicentennial of our founding in San Antonio in 1869, we look back in gratitude for God’s abundant blessings and we look forward in faith and hope to a vibrant future of continuing our Mission to those most in need.
