We have faith your spiritual journey will lead you to our door. We, the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word, Houston, Texas are an international and multicultural Congregation of women religious serving Jesus Christ who is suffering in a multitude of persons.



Our mission call has echoed throughout our history and many women have answered it generously, interpreting it according to the needs of their time.

The call to holiness is rooted in the baptism of each Christian. Today some women choose to respond more deeply and dedicate their lives to following Jesus, poor, chaste and obedient, by vowed consecrated life in the Church.

Take the next step by contacting one of our Vocation Offices listed below based on your country of origin.


Time of Inquiry

The time of inquiry is flexible and tailored to the needs of each individual. It is a time to come and meet the Sisters, spend time with the community in prayer, celebrations and other occasions. There is also time to meet with the Vocation Director for discernment and questions.

At various stages in a woman’s journey she is helped to grow in her relationship with God, herself and others and to become more familiar with the spirit and charism of our particular Congregation.

A woman is usually in contact with the community for a year or two before beginning the formal process of initial formation.
