Jubilee Blessings, Sisters and Associates of Christian Charity!

Photo compliments of the SCC Generalate Website

Today the Congregation of the Sisters of Christian Charity celebrate the 160th anniversary of its founding in Paderborn, Germany by Blessed Pauline von Mallinckrodt. Today we join together in this jubilee moment of thanksgiving. We join in giving thanks to God for the "YES" of Mother Pauline and her first three Companions, the "YES" of each and every Sister and Associate during these past 160 years, and the "YES" of all those will follow in these same footsteps. As our Superior General noted in a recent reflection, "... the Magnificat will be the never-ending echo of our Fiat." So together let us pray,

"For all that has been, 'Thanks!'

For all that will be, 'YES!'"

For more on this special moment in the life of the community, visit the Generalate's online chronicles here and read recent reflections posted by our Superior General here, here, and here.
