Our Mission

Mission Statement

We, Sisters of Charity of Our Lady of Mercy, the religious congregation founded by Bishop John England in Charleston, South Carolina in 1829, follow Christ by living prayerfully in a supportive community dedicated to the service of God’s people.

We strive to carry out our consecration in the spirit of the Beatitudes with the humility, simplicity and compassion evidenced by our patroness, Mary, the Mother of Jesus.
