The Sisters of Charity were the first religious congregation for women to arrive in Australia. They are about to celebrate their 175th anniversary. Their homepage provides information on their history, work and spirituality.
The Sisters of Charity have a special place in the story of the Australian Church, having arrived from Ireland in 1838, as the first religious sisters in the colony of New South Wales.
Ever since those pioneering days the sisters have offered help, consolation, encouragement and inspiration to generations of Australians.
Their work continues and can be read about, along with news on all their anniversary celebrations at their homepage.
