A Vision of Service, a celebration of the Golden Jubilee of a Federation of thirteen congregations of North American Sisters and Daughters of Charity, presents a unique picture of the post-modern nun and her non-traditional ministries. Sr. Anthony describes the work of the Sisters of Charity today who are lawyers, doctors, theologians, advocates, parish pasters, prison chaplains, college presidents, journalists, professors, scientists, ecologists, political advisors, and interpreters for the deaf. There are sisters who are members of labor relations boards, director of Marriage Tribunals, CEOs of large hospitals and social work centers, such as Covenant House in New York. They are marriage counselors and workers with AIDS victims, with battered wives, abused children, and severely handicapped children. Each congregation has found a unique way of expressing the values, vision and spirit of St. Vincent de Paul, Louise de Marillac, and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton. Their diverse story is the story of the empowerment of ministry within the Church today.
