Daughters of Divine Charity

The Daughters of Divine Charity are an order of Roman Catholic religious sisters with a mother house in Vienna.

History

Mother Franziska Lechner began her work in 1868 in Vienna, Austria by opening St. Mary's Homes for working girls during the European Industrial Revolution. The Congregation's apostolic works now extend to the education of youth, providing care and home for the elderly, the mentally, physically and psychologically disabled.
