Our Charism is the spiritual gift that comes from our relationship with Jesus having deeply contemplated in a particular moment of His life. It is the love of God that we discover in the heart of Jesus on the cross, and of Mary at the foot of the cross. Jesus Christ Crucified, the total, unconditional self-giving love, is the perfect model for the Sisters. Through our lives and our works, we try to bring this same love and hope into the world.
We are called to contemplate, experience and share God’s love for every person. The most amiable and most generous Spirit of Jesus, crucified and risen, is the measure of our love. With gratitude, we participate in his mission of salvation seeking to live a life of total dedication to God, communion and humble service with Mary, Mother of Love beneath the Cross. We learn, in union with Mary, to love God and our neighbour.
In the spirit of Christ Crucified and Risen, Canossian Sisters strive to make God known and loved. This we seek to fulfill through striving to be a prophetic witness; living a humble and joyful life in the community. Through a variety of ministries, Sisters are able to integrate their love for God into concrete works of service, being especially mindful of those in greatest need.
