Sisters of the Incarnate Word and Blessed Sacrament

SIWLogoFounded in Lyon, France in 1625; came to Cleveland, Ohio in 1927

Foundress – Jeanne Chézard de Matel

Charism – Our Congregation is a community of women, centered in the person of Jesus, faithfully sharing the tradition that has been passed on to us by Jeanne Chézard de Matel, our foundress.

We witness that God’s reign is in our midst by walking in the spirit of Jesus: compassionate, poor, gentle, single-hearted, patient in suffering, longing for truth and justice, merciful, and peace-making. We “extend the mystery of the Incarnation,” in Word and Sacrament, by sharing in the life and mission of Jesus.

Motto – Women consecrated to contemplating and making present the human face of God.

Ministries – Education, spiritual direction, retreats, hospice care, health care, parish pastoral ministry, and prayer
