CCVI together with UIW Celebrate San Antonio Tricentennial Festival Day on Campus: Mi Casa es Su Casa!
San Antonio is celebrating its 300th anniversary in 2018. The Ministries of the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word, including the University of the Incarnate Word, are proud to be a part of that history as we collaboratively honor our past, present and future during this historic celebration.
In 1869, Bishop Claude Dubuis, in response to the urgent appeals of the people of San Antonio, decided to send three Incarnate Word Sisters from Galveston to open a hospital in San Antonio. People in the city were literally dying in the streets because of the outbreak of cholera.
As San Antonio celebrates a 300th anniversary, we celebrate the Incarnate Word ministries that have been part of almost half of that history.
