The Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word living in Missouri were privileged to hold the premier event celebrating the 150th Anniversary of the Congregation’s founding in San Antonio, Texas, in 1869. On Friday evening, March 1, 2019, about 150 persons gathered in St. Ann Catholic Church, Normandy, Missouri to pray and sing Solemn Vespers. Thus began the weekend-long commemoration.
February 20th marks the annual World Day of Social Justice, as established by the General Assembly of the United Nations, and this year our Congregation is also celebrating 150 years of promoting human dignity. This is definitely a sacred time for us to look back with gratitude, act in the present with passion, and dream of the future with hope.
From its beginnings, our congregation committed to bring the healing love of Jesus, the Incarnate Word, to those who need it most no matter where they are. Today, we share the reflection of Pope Francis for the 27th World Day of the Sick, celebrated in Calcutta, India.
