Our Catholic Identity
As a Catholic foundation, we see the church’s social teachings as guideposts to which our work aspires. Being founded by the Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine, every aspect of our work reflects their mission, which upholds core elements of Catholic social teaching: life and dignity of the human person; call to family, community and participation; rights and responsibilities; option for the poor and vulnerable; the dignity of work and the right of workers; solidarity; and care for God’s creation.
