As Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth (SCLs) and SCL Associates marked the 160th anniversary of the founding of the religious Community in 2018, the Vincentian charism/spirit continued to energize their efforts.

Their commitment to serve persons who are poor or marginalized and to work for justice took many different shapes and forms over the past year. This included extensive advocacy, participation in rallies and direct service. In addition, Sisters and SCL Associates shared key observances throughout the year and received recognition for their good works.
