Sisters of Saint Paul De Chartres (SPC)

Sisters at the back of the Cathedral of Saint AndrewAbout:
The Sisters of St. Paul came to the Diocese of Marquette upon the invitation of the Bishop of Marquette, Thomas L. Noa. He wanted a community of Sisters who would establish a Novitiate in his diocese, so that young women eager to become Religious would not have to go outside the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
Years later two Sisters from Manila were in the States and they took the opportunity to visit the U.P. and were introduced to Bishop Noa. Some time later Bishop Noa remembered the Sisters and asked them about establishing a community of Sisters of St. Paul de Chartres in the Diocese of Marquette as well as to staff the Bishop Noa Home, a residence for Senior Citizens and retired priests of the diocese. There were nine members in the first group that arrived in Marquette in 1963.
Through the years the Sisters have continued to serve the people of God in the Diocese of Marquette: prison visitation, summer religion programs, live-ins for young women, Cursillo, Youth Ministry, Adult Education, vocation promotion, helping St. Vincent de Paul and care to the elderly and shut-ins.
Sisters of Charity are marked by the Paschal Mystery that seared the life of its founders.
Charism: serve the poor with tranquil daring, work to improve the human and spiritual level of the villagers by educating the girls and visiting the poor and the sick, and go places where other Congregations cannot go.
The Sisters work in education, health care, pastoral ministry, and social services.
