Ladies of Charity

The Ladies of Charity is a Diocesan wide organization of women founded to help carry out the Church’s mission by responding to the poor and those with special needs in a particular parish. This group operates under the direction of Father Donley and our parish Social Service Minister, Sister Jane Fadgen. Women who have been received into the Ladies of Charity regularly visit the sick and elderly of the parish as well as those in hospitals and nursing homes.
