SCN Lay Mission Volunteer Program
We invite lay women and men to a cross-cultural partnership with people, especially the oppressed, economically poor, and marginalized, primarily in the areas in which Sisters, Associates, and/or members of the Sisters of Charity Federation are called to mission.
Join our mission to lead, serve, and make a difference. The SCN Volunteer Program has partnered with Notre Dame Mission Volunteer—AmeriCorps to offer two AmeriCorps positions on our beautiful 300-acre campus working with our Ecological Sustainability and Nazareth Grounds teams in furthering the SCN mission to “care for the earth”.

Sister Luke Boiarski
The Sisters of Charity of Nazareth have a long tradition of responding in times of disaster. Historically Sisters have responded to flooding in Louisville, the yellow fever epidemic, monsoons in India, a hurricane in Belize, and an earthquake in Nepal. Continuing in this spirit, the SCN Disaster Relief Program invites volunteers to offer spiritual and physical support to persons experiencing a disaster. Sisters and volunteers respond in the same spirit of Vincent de Paul with reverence for each person and witness to God’s presence in the midst of adversity. The Disaster Relief Program provides an opportunity to put faith into action.
A mission trip called “A Circle of Women” will take place in Montana August 2-8, 20022. This event is sponsored by The Sisters of Charity of Nazareth and Leavenworth.
