The Ladies of Charity


The Ladies of Charity and Jr. Ladies of Charity Mission.

The Ladies of Charity seek no recognition in their task. Their mission is to serve the poor with dignity and integrity as though they are Christ in the person of the poor. They give personal gifts of self, of time, devotion, sacrifices, and perseverance in the effort to bring dignity to each person and to respond with compassion to every human misery.

Our Motto: To serve rather than to be served in humility, simplicity and charity.

Who are the Ladies of Charity? They are women inspired by the life of St. Vincent de Paul, who have come together to help meet the needs of the poor.

They are women who are imitators of Christ and who see the face of Christ in their neighbor. They are homemakers, businesswomen, teachers, professionals, and retirees; all of them dedicated to helping the poor and the disenfranchised.

Associations of Ladies of Charity are in 20 states and the District of Columbia. As member of the International Association of Charities, they are in 49 countries and regions with over 250,000 members worldwide.

The Junior Ladies of Charity seek to serve those in need, by providing services in the spirit of humility, simplicity and charity.


Membership meetings are held every fourth Sunday after 8:00 am mass in the community room. Executive Board meetings are held quarterly.
