Another celebration of the 150th Anniversary of the Congregation, took place at CHRISTUS Hospice Center in San Antonio to recall the arrival of the three founders to San Antonio in 1869. The event was coordinated by Rev. Derek Labranch, Hospice Chaplain.
Los Quijotes were born in 1989, when more than 20 willing medical volunteers traveled to Jalapa, a poor area of Mexico City, upon the request of the CCVI Congregation. The group adopted the name of the famous Spanish character as they dreamed of doing good, fighting gigantic health problems with words, hands, medicines, good will and enthusiasm.
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.
