Together we participate in God’s creating action, transforming the earth.
In this issue of Salt, we celebrate the legacy of our beloved Lou Anglin, BVM; the 103rd birthday of Jean Dolores Schmidt, BVM; fifteen 70-year-Jubilarians, and our first in-person Assembly since COVID-19. We look to the future as we continue to adapt our mission, sponsor women in pursuit of education, support children in need, and advocate for justice in society and in the Catholic Church.
Created in 1974, Salt communicates the life, mission and core values of our sisters and associates and invites others to partner with us to continue our legacy. Salt is published three times a year for friends and family of the Sisters of Charity, BVM.
