Corporation Board for Sponsored Ministries
The Corporation Board for Sponsored Ministries (CBSM) of the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati was established in 1995. CBSM stays attuned to the purpose for the Congregation involvement in sponsorship. The Sisters of Charity Constitutions states: As a Congregation we sponsor institutions which further our mission and give witness to Gospel values. The decision to sponsor an institution is influenced also by our knowledge of social needs and trends and the availability of our resources. (Constitutions, Page 9).
A Sister of Charity serves as liaison between each sponsored ministry and the CBSM. In carrying out their responsibilities – from sponsorship-related issues to mission promotion to budgets and annual meetings – CBSM helps to serve unmet needs through the focus of the five sponsored ministries.
Mission as a Sacred Trust
The CBSM-created DVD “Mission as a Sacred Trust” focuses on the mission of the Sisters of Charity as carried out through their ministries both historically and in our contemporary milieu.
