What we do
Sisters at the IW Village engage in meaningful conversations together with all the Sisters of the Congregation, in examining more closely how all can relate generation by generation. The Sisters engaged in the process are hoping to offer insights to the other generational groups about the transition thresholds they encounter and the needs related to them in their lives.
We are happy to announce that Margaret Hernandez has joined the administrative staff of the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word in the position of Executive Assistant in support of the General Leadership Team. Margaret comes to us with excellent experience, having served for years as Executive Assistant to the President, Chief Nursing Officer, and Vice President for Finance at our CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Medical Center Hospital. She holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Organizational Leadership from Middle Tennessee State University and has significant experience in additional administrative positions. We are looking forward to our work with Margaret.
As we join in the celebration of ‘Laudato Si Week,’ and after the long indoor lockdown, we find that there is so much to celebrate in the outdoors, now that ‘Spring has sprung’ and we are led to take a look at our own ‘Care of Creation’ attitudes and activities.
The Associate communities have been doing their best to accompany one another this whole year. Both Mexico and U.S. Associates had their assemblies online. We are encouraged by the way our Associates have learned how to use technology for these processes. The Mexico Associate Assembly was celebrated over several weeks, culminating with the transition to a new team. The U.S. Associates also used technology to transition to a new coordinating committee.
In a Joyful spirit, the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word, celebrated the beautiful Feast of Easter, The Resurrection of the Lord, following the penitential Lenten Season amid the long year of COVID Lockdown.

Good evening. We are so blessed to be able to come together in person, with the Sisters and with our sister sponsored ministries, in celebration of the Feast of the Annunciation and Incarnate Word Day. We have not been able to celebrate Mass in this way for more than a year — and this fellowship has been sorely missed and greatly needed.
