Beverly Hoffman, SCN, missioned to New Orleans

“Beverly, you go in our name and with our blessing. As Catherine says: ‘Community must be the center from which all our good works emanate and in the name of the community all must be done.”‘

The House of Charity “seeks to model collaboration among member congregations of the Charity Federation, witness religious life to a new generation of young adults, serve persons who are poor in their rebuilding efforts in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina, and offer opportunities for vocational discernment and volunteer service, especially to young adults.” (Global Sisters Report).

Hallmarks of the House of Charity include prayer, reflection, service, hospitality and intentional community.
