History: The Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul were founded in France, 1633, and in the U.S., St. Elizabeth Ann Seton had founded a companion community that established a ministry in St. Louis, 1828. That community merged with the Daughters of Charity and became its American Province, 1850, and founded the Province of St. Louis, 2011. The St. Louis sisters had ministered to the Sans Arc Lakota Indians on the Cheyenne River Reservation, South Dakota, at Sacred Heart Church, Dupree, and at the Tribal Center, Eagle Butte, 1973-1970s.
