St Margatet's Residence, Religious Sisters of Charity, Rock Ferry, April 2011

History

The Religious Sisters of Charity are a Catholic religious congregation of women founded in Ireland in 1815 by Mary Aikenhead. They have been working in England since 1840, and in Scotland since 1948. We have worked in many different areas and in many different ministries.

The Religious Sisters of Charity can be defined through our motto and our 4th vow. Our Motto 'The charity of Christ urges us onwards' and our 4th vow of 'Service of the Poor' enable us to discern where we should be and what we should be doing.

Our purpose in doing this is to bring about the reign of God in the places where we minister and to the people we are living and working with.

Since the first sisters came to England in 1840 and to Scotland in 1948, our sisters have been involved in an extraordinary range and variety of ministries.

In 1890, the sisters felt capable once again of responding to needs further afield, and established St Margaret's Home, Rockferry in 1890.

Here, the sisters were involved in residential care of the elderly, parish visiting, State agency work, an Irish Welfare Centre and work with the Union of Catholic Mothers.

The sisters moved from St. Margaret's in 2004 and the residential home closed. One sister still remains living in the area.
