The Daughters of Charity are an international community of apostolic life. Founded by St. Vincent de Paul and St. Louise de Marillac in 1633 in France, they first came to Ireland in 1855 when the country was still recovering from the effects of the Famine. Today the Irish Province of the Daughters of Charity comprises 27 houses across the country and five in Kenya. The Irish Province also fostered the growth of the now thriving Province of Nigeria. In addition to Kenya Irish sisters are also on mission in Nigeria and Ethiopia. Worldwide there are about 18,832 Daughters of Charity in some 91 countries in all five continents. We have special relationship with the other Vincentian organizations, whose members live their commitment in the tradition of St. Vincent de Paul and St. Louise de Marillac. Contact us to learn more.
