Charity Federation Rebuilding New Orleans Home

Vocation directors within the Charity Federation have gathered once again in New Orleans to rebuild homes affected by Hurricane Katrina. Each year, the vocation directors meet during the first week of January to help in the efforts to rebuild the beautiful, historic city.

Vocation directors from different congregations bring young adults with them to assist. This year, Sister of Charity of Nazareth Vocation Director Nancy Gerth brough Kaytee who is from Columbus Ohio (in yellow shirt). Pictured along with Sister Nancy and Kaytee are Sister Carol, a member of the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati congregation, and the other young woman (in blue) is Cheyenne who is from New Jersey. This group of four have been working along with the Phoenix of New Orleans organization to rebuild the home of a 72 year old single woman. She had lived in the home, located in Midway, the inner-city of New Orleans, her entire life until is was virtually destroyed by the hurricane. She is one of three people still living in a FEMA-provided trailer in her neighborhood and is to be evicted in 20 days.

Sister Nancy and her group have spent their time making the home livable again. They have painted the interior of the home and laid laminate flooring. The group will continue its work in order to soon have the house ready to be lived in again.

The Future of Charity is a group that has formed to build relationships among the younger, newer members of the Sisters of Charity Federation. As our congregations grow smaller, we recognize an exciting opportunity for collaboration! In August, our Future of Charity group gathered for the first time at the House of Charity in New Orleans, Louisiana. We spent time getting to know one another and dreaming about how we might journey together.  One idea that emerged was this blog. We are thrilled that it has taken shape, through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.
