Founded by St Vincent de Paul and
St Louise de Marillac - Paris 1633.
The Sisters look to “her who brought forth Christ...the Virgin Mary.… In her own life, she gives the example of that maternal love by which all should be animated who cooperate in the apostolic mission of the Church on behalf of the rebirth of mankind.” * (C. 26)
The Daughters of Charity promote Marian devotion. They inculturate it through simple means such as the Miraculous Medal, a genuine summary of the history of salvation.
They work for the development of Marian Associations and for their integration into the pastoral plan of the Church. (S.14b)
