Congregational Leader and Council

We are Sisters of Charity, women of Mary Aikenhead, contemplatives in action impelled by the love of Christ.

We live the joy of the Gospel.

We respond courageously to the call to mission, going out to the margins, walking in partnership with others.

Elected at the 2014 Chapter to lead the Sisters of Charity of Australia in the period 2014 to 2020 are: (from left) Sister Cate O’Brien, Sister Margaret Beirne, Congregational Leader, Sister Clare Nolan, and Sister Suzette Clark.

Congregational structure

The Congregation of the Sisters of Charity is formally constituted as an institute, whose values and ways of proceeding are expressed in its Constitutions, which are based on those of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits).

The Sisters of Charity of Australia congregational offices are based in Sydney.
