Impelled by the love of Christ, we, the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth, offer every loving service in our power to meet the critical needs of God’s people.
SCL Vision Statement
As Sisters of Charity we commit ourselves here and now to embrace anew the charism given us by Vincent, Louise, Mother Xavier:
The Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth are part of the worldwide Vincentian family -- living the charism of St. Vincent de Paul and St. Louise de Marillac.
Sister Mary Arthel Clinic was recognized with a reception on Aug. 25 to mark her retirement as director of the Leavenworth Friendly Visitors program.

Say hello to Notre-Dame, Sainte-Chappelle…and Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal,” Sister Nancy Gunderson, OSB, emailed knowing I was in Paris. I had never heard of the latter. Sister informed me that it was a pilgrimage site where the Blessed Virgin appeared to St. Catherine Labouré. (Below, Louise de Marillac’s remains have been in this enshrined reliquary since 1920.)
SCLs and candidates participated in the first Future of Charity Gathering in New Orleans, Aug. 22-24. SCL participants included Sisters Rejane Cytacki, Vicki Lichtenauer and Mary Lex Smith, and Mallorie Gerwitz and Laurie Parker, candidates.
