Today, our approach to impact stems from the long legacy of dedicated sisters who founded, expanded and operated our health ministries. Driven by faith, selfless compassion and the mandate from Mother Odilia to “continue courageously,” our sisters always sought to go where the need was greatest. Our sisters faced this challenge with creativity and determination, serving places and people others would not.

Following years of ministry through innovative, compassionate care, we now commit our resources to new ways of healing, new ways of providing care to areas of great need. Through impact investing, directed philanthropy and advocacy for the care of creation, we expand our tradition of health care to care for the health of the planet and its people. These new ministries are how we respond, as Pope Francis has pleaded, to “the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor.”

We reinvest the assets built over many years of ministry to support collaborators locally, regionally, and globally who carry on the legacy of compassionate care through care of creation.
