Our sisters' mission is carried forward by many hands

Long before the American workplace widely accepted women in professional roles, the Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine were directing major health care institutions, teaching in schools and developing new programs to provide needed human services. The first Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine in America served as the first public health nurses in Cleveland, Ohio. In 1851, they began an enduring legacy of responsive ministry, creative stewardship and an ongoing quest for social justice that lives on today in Ohio, South Carolina and beyond.

The Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine's mission to continue the healing ministry of Jesus Christ has touched many people throughout the past century and a half, and many hands carry this mission forward.

We welcome you to share your experiences with the Sisters and their ministries. Your stories will be shared with the congregation, and may be published on this site.
