We are a Community of vowed Sisters, lay Associates and Companions. We share in the charism and mission of Divine Compassion with our partners, colleagues, donors, alumni, families, friends, staff, clients and all with whom we minister.
From the very beginning, Divine Compassion has been about the blending of strength and tenderness, community-building and hospitality, empowerment and solidarity, particularly with those who are disadvantaged.
Our Divine Compassion Community’s hallmarks of gentleness, patience, and joy are the gifts of our patron saints, Francis de Sales and Jane Frances de Chantal, who found in these every day virtues the essence of the Divine Compassion.
Empowered by God’s love, we are called to be the compassionate presence of God in the world.
Touched by God’s mercy, we are called to be life-giving women of prayer who respond to the signs of the times by embracing the suffering of others, and bringing God’s healing love to them.
