The Sisters of Christian Charity were founded in 1849 in Germany by Pauline von Mallinckrodt. Together with three young women, she carried out her mission of caring for impoverished and abandoned children, with a special emphasis on the blind. In the early years of the congregation, their ministry expanded from a crowded day nursery to sixteen different institutions educating some 4,000 children.

As Sisters of Christian Charity today, we strive to emulate our foundress’ spirit of courageous surrender to the will of God. We draw our strength from the Eucharist, as, in the words of Mother Pauline, “the Blessed Sacrament is my life, my bliss; to it I owe the grace of my holy vocation.” We work in education, healthcare, homemaking, parish work, and various other ministries, always seeking to love those we serve with the love of Christ.
