Sisters of Charity Australia

Sisters of Charity

The Sisters of Charity of Australia are women religious who have been serving the people of Australia since 1838.

They are located in Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania.

Within the mission of the Catholic Church, they are committed especially to service of the poor and disadvantaged, and have a commitment to social justice and to the environment.

On several occasions they have responded to invitations to serve in overseas mission for shorter or longer periods.

To many people the Sisters of Charity provide a beacon of hope in times of uncertainty.

Our mission in today’s world draws strength from a spirituality based on the Christian scriptures and an Ignatian tradition and that of its Congregation, dating back to their founder, Mary Aikenhead.
