The Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word

The Congregation of the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word {CCVI} was founded in Galveston, Texas, U.S.A. on October 25, 1866 by a French Bishop and three French Sisters.
Our mission in Kenya traces its roots to 1981 when Bishop Ndingi invited the sisters to lead a public health project in Eastern Pokot, which was then part of Nakuru Diocese. In time the mission grew and spread its works in education and health care in Molo and Nairobi areas.
The Charism of the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word is to be the healing presence of Jesus to the sick, the uneducated and all those we serve. The sisters continue to respond to the call of their founding Bishop, “Our Lord Jesus Christ suffering in the persons of a multitude of sick and infirm of every kind seeks relief at your hands”
