Consecrated by baptism, we are all called to the perfection of charity. To live a life faithful to Christ who calls, different paths are open to us: matrimony, priesthood, celibacy and religious life.
With the Sisters of Charity of Ottawa (SCO), three responses to this call, are offered:
a commitment to sharing the spirituality and charism of the SCO as an Associate
consecrated life as a lay person
Responding to Christ’s special invitation, benefiting from a gift of the Spirit and guided by the message of the Beatitudes, we, SCO, have chosen the way of the evangelical counsels to consecrate ourselves to God and to the service of our brothers and sisters.
God’s will has nourished my life and rooted me in Bytown.
Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.
Jesus is on every shore where the eyes of faith can see him.
