What do we do?
We are called to see God in each person and respond to the needs of our time.
We live in community and serve the people of God in cities, rural areas and indigenous villages in Chile, Colombia, Ireland, Mexico, Peru, Tanzania, the United States and Zambia.
Three young women committed their lives to bringing the healing and saving love of the Incarnate Word to the people of Texas in 1869. We continue to respond to this call to serve and to promote human dignity within present realities.
We work as administrators and teachers in all levels of education – from kindergarten to university.
We are leaders, nurses, social workers and chaplains in our extensive health ministry of hospitals, hospices, community clinics and other health programs.
