The SC Archives holds many treasures, including video footage from a Christmas celebration at St. Joseph Infant and Maternity Home (now St. Joseph Home of Cincinnati) in the late 1960s. Included among the many Sisters of Charity ministering there at the time were Sisters Rose Eileen McGinnis and Teresa Mary Chiou.
Water With Blessings in Haiti
S. Andrea Koverman and Director of OPJCC and Associate Debbie Weber spent the first week of Advent in Zabriko, Haiti. As a SC Federation collaboration, the two along with Steve Schmitt, an Associate of the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth, Kentucky, delivered water filtration kits to the women of Zabriko and trained them to be “Water Women,” women who commit to the kind act of sharing clean water with three other families in their communities. By equipping the Water Women of Zabriko with a simple, in-home filtration system and teaching them clean water habits, they were able to provide them with the means to protect not only their family but also their neighbors from deadly water. During their time in Haiti, the three trained 41 Water Women (between them, they have 179 children). These women will share their filtration system with three other families!

Living the Gospel with Joy
The Joy of the Gospel sings in this photo of S. Sally Duffy with Pope Francis. S. Sally made a pilgrimage to Rome the first week of November with members of FADICA, Foundations and Donors Interested in Catholic Activities. The theme of the week was “Going Out: Living the Gospel with Joy,” during which members had the opportunity to dialogue with Cardinal George Pell, prefect of the secretariat for the economy, and with Monsignor Peter Brian Wells, assessor for general affairs of the secretariat of state. In addition they took part in a spiritual retreat, heard from the CEO of the Global Freedom Network, an interfaith effort to address human trafficking, listened to a panel on sharing the Joy of the Gospel, and met with Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia, president of the Pontifical Council for the Family, which is central to Pope Francis’ visit to the U.S. next September. S. Sally currently serves as the chair of the board of FADICA.

Year of Consecrated Life
Pope Francis has declared Nov. 30, 2014, through Feb. 2, 2016, the Year of Consecrated Life. The purpose of the yearlong celebration, according to a Vatican statement, is to “make a grateful remembrance of the recent past” while embracing “the future with hope.”
Pope Francis has asked the Church’s religious sisters, brothers and priests to “wake up the world” with their testimony of faith, holiness and hope. We, Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati, with the Archdiocese and Church plan to devote this year to the renewal of religious life, the celebration of the witness of members of religious orders and to inviting young people to consider a religious vocation. And, we ask others to join us as we Wake Up The World! To learn more about the Year of Consecrated Life …
Food for the Soul
The Sisters of Charity Art Collection contains many beautiful reproductions of masters’ artwork. Some of these paintings are hung in locations not frequented by many. In an effort to make this art more assessable, the Communications Office and the Archives began displaying one of these paintings in the Motherhouse Dining Room each month. Accompanying the art is an account of how it came to be in the art collection, a brief history of the art, and of the artist and his style. November's featured artwork is a statue of the Miraculous Mother. Click here to read more ...
