Communicating Charism

Leadership and Social Media Project

The Loyola Institute for Ministry, supported by a grant from the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, implemented the project entitled "Communicating Charism."

It was founded on the belief that communication is fundamental to the Christian faith. God communicated God’s very self in Jesus, continues to communicate through the work of the Holy Spirit, and invites the faithful to share in the divine task of communicating God’s word in the Church and world today.

The grant's purpose was to build social media and leadership capacity among members of seven communities of women religious in the U.S., Africa, and Asia.  


The videos produced by Salt+Light TV to spread the word about the participating communities were broadcast on several national TV stations, including Salt+Light TV, NET TV, and CatholicTV.  Arrangements are being made for them to be broadcast on local TV stations in North America, West Africa, and East Africa.  More information about the series, including about how to purchase it:  The seven episodes are available here. The Vocation Videos are available here. The congregations profiled in the video series are:

  • Congregation of St. Joseph Sisters
  • Religious of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, Uganda/Kenya Province
  • Congregation of Our Lady of Mount Carmel
  • Congregation of the Sisters of Our Lady of Kilimanjaro
  • Sisters of the Holy Family
  • Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, Benin City, Nigeria
  • Daughters of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary of Chí Hòa
