Sisters For Christian Community Welcome You!
The Sisters For Christian Community are contemporary women bonded together to manifest their commitment to Christ in a new form of consecrated life, as a prophetic, collegial, ecclesial community. The Community was formed in 1970 in response to Vatican II. Today SFCC membership spans the globe with members on every continent. The sisters seek to be present with their time, talent and expertise wherever there is a need for Christian love and community witness.
The Community reflects the journey of women called to be co-foundresses, co-equals and co-responsible for all aspects of this prophetic response to Religious Life which is ecumenical, with a self-supporting membership.
SFCC is organized into geographical regions, each with a Regional Communication Coordinator (RCC) who is selected from among the regional membership. The Region aims at fostering community through regional meetings and open communication among the membership. The Region sends reports about its activities to the community newsletter.
An annual assembly is convened at a different location with the purpose of fostering communication and community among the full membership of SFCC. The annual international assembly addresses all community business and proposals that have been raised via the community newsletter during the previous year. All community business is conducted using consensus as the decision making process.
The vision, mission and goals of the Sisters For Christian Community are clearly stated in the SFCC Profile. The apostolic goal of SFCC is to promote and witness Christian community, and the sisters strive through all means available to forward the realization of Christ's prayer, "that all may be ONE" in Community. To achieve this goal SFCC seek to bring together into a community Christ-commited women with the mission of building up the body of Christ through helping to build dynamic Christian Community wherever they live out their calling.
