|Ladies of Charity Morgan Hill, CA||
Let us pray for one another:
My God, I humbly beg you to make me an instrument of your love; give me the grace of performing all my actions to help my neighbor with charity, humility, and simplicity.
It is my hope, Lord, that fidelity in the practice of these virtues may obtain the reward which you have promised to those who serve you in the person of the poor.
Welcome to the Ladies of Charity Morgan Hill.
The Ladies of Charity Morgan Hill is a branch of the Ladies of Charity in the US and the world. The Ladies were founded by St. Vincent de Paul in 1617 in response to the need of a family in his parish.
We seek to make Christ present by serving the material and spiritual needs of the sick, the poor, and the marginalized of our society. As Ladies of Charity, we are called to serve those in need in a spirit of humility, simplicity, and charity. St. Vincent de Paul was assisted by St. Louise de Marillac in the foundation of the Ladies of Charity. Both persons encouraged the Ladies to always be kind and respectful to those who are poor because they represent Jesus.
This year, beginning on Pentecost Sunday, we are being asked to collaborate with all the members of the Vincentian Family: Ladies of Charity, Congregation of the Mission, Daughters of Charity, St. Vincent de Paul Society, and Vincentian Lay Missioners, to celebrate our collective mission and to learn more about each other and how we serve.
We meet monthly to conduct business, to pray and reflect on our service, and to support each other in the service we are providing.
In the spirit of St. Vincent,
Ladies of Charity Morgan Hill
