SCLs Highlights

Mission Statement

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:

  • to love the poor,

  • to love one another,

  • to live simply,

  • and to unite the whole of our lives in the poor and loving Christ.

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.
