On Sept. 18, the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word celebrated the opening of the CCVI Heritage Center, a sacred space that holds and honors the legacy of the ministries of the Congregation of the Sisters. The celebration included a Mass presided by Archbishop Gustavo Garcia-Siller followed by a blessing and reception. The physical spaces making up the center include the Chapel of the Incarnate Word, gallery spaces on the first and second floors immediately adjacent to the chapel, and the Brackenridge/Sweet House, among others.
As part of the Heritage Center, the exhibit, “A Life for God and a Heart for Others,” was designed to express the core values that inspired the Sisters for nearly 150 years to live lives of service. The galleries consist of photos, letters, stories, artifacts, and other notable items documenting the ministries of the Sisters throughout the world.
