Since 1963, the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word have been serving the sick and infirm in Central America. This was in response to the invitation of Pope John XXIII for religious men and women of the United States of America to be sent on mission to different parts of the world, above all to serve the most vulnerable and needy people in Latin America. The Spring/Summer 2013 issue of The Word Among Us is dedicated to and features stories from our Sisters in El Salvador and Guatemala.
This year, the Ruah Center celebrates 25 years of ministry. The Center, a ministry of the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word, focuses primarily on promoting the re-creation of the human spirit. Its primary work is to plan for and to welcome individuals and groups who seek healing afforded by an environment of beauty, quiet, and reverence for all of life. Ruah will host monthly evening experiences of Centering Prayer and reflection throughout our year of celebration
