We are excited to share with you the second issue of Charity in Motion. This digital newsletter is designed to keep friends of the Community connected to the mission and ministries of the Sisters of Charity and to the many ways the SC charism continues to reach out today. Rereading the familiar Advent Scriptures, we are offered opportunities to see glimpses of our final destination. Yet, we are distracted, ever conscious of our sisters and brothers on the U.S./Mexico border. As our own SCs and Associates serve as volunteers, aiding those from Central America who are seeking asylum, we invite you to join us as we pray in support, assuring that all migrants will be met with respect, compassion and love. “As pilgrims we pray for the wisdom to know the needs of our sisters and brothers and we dare to risk a caring response” (SC Charism Statement).
