What makes Calvary unique?
Calvary continues the Mission of the Sisters of the Little Company of Mary.
“Our passionate love for God and humanity compels us to search out the lost, the lonely and the alienated. For them, as for the dying and the sick in mind, heart or body, we are messengers of God’s infinite and inclusive love.”
Calvary’s heartfelt concern is expressed in multiple ways
- in the quality of our presence and the depth of caring,
- in our professionalism, reliability and resourcefulness,
- in our solidarity and in our respect for each individual we encounter, whatever their circumstances, no matter how marginalised, vulnerable or ill they may perceive them to be,
- in our choices, and
- in our actions
Our strategy, an expression of our mission intent for 2016-2020, is a plan of action, a plan to put the people whom we are called to care for, front and centre, now and into the future. This strategy is our mission put in action.
Pope Benedict XVI, in Deus Caritas Est (2005) reinforced this call when he said:
“. . . we are dealing with human beings, and human beings always need something more than technically proper care. They need humanity. They need heartfelt concern.”
