Italy is the birthplace of the Sisters of Charity of Saint Mary, and several Italian communities receive support from the Congregation. Currently under the leadership of Mother Myriam Sida and her council, the Italian Sisters of Charity continue to provide an excellent education to children in the first house acquired by Mother Marie Clarac on Via Pio V in Turin. They also run a retreat in Dogliani for people of any age looking for a communal experience where they can express their spirituality or simply rest and enjoy this peaceful haven.
