During the past few weeks of the COVID-19 pandemic, we, the Sisters of Charity of Saint Elizabeth, have lost 15 of our dear sisters. It was not possible to memorialize each sister with the rituals that bring closure and comfort.  As each sister was brought home to Convent Station, the Bells of Holy Family Chapel tolled as the entire congregation prayed together.

We thank God for these sisters who touched the lives of so many, each in her own way and with her own special gifts.

We know these sisters partnered with many of you in the mission of Charity and will be remembered with love and gratitude.

We invite you to share with us how your life was blessed by the presence of these sisters.  If you would like to offer a tribute to one of these sisters, you can do so on our Facebook page @SistersofCharityofSaintElizabeth.
