Religious Congregations

The Sisters of Charity of Australia have been serving the people of Australia since 1838.

The Sisters of Charity are committed especially to service of the poor and disadvantaged, and have a commitment to social justice and the environment.

Their mission in today's world draws strength from a spirituality based on the Christian scriptures, an Ignatian tradition and that of their congregation, dating back to their founder, Mary Aikenhead.

In the Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle, the Sisters of Charity assist in the field of Pastoral Ministries in some of our parishes.
