Prayer is an essential part of our daily life and Eucharist forms an integral part of it. We consider prayer as a privileged way of drawing closer to the newness of God each day and to the needs of the world.


Canossian Sisters are called to live as contemplative apostles. This means that everything we do in ministry stems from our personal relationship with God, nurtured through prayer. Each day, sisters participate in various forms of prayer including the Liturgy of the Hours, Eucharist and personal meditation. In addition, our weekly routine includes moments of adoration, rosary, Way of the Cross and sharing on the Word of God together.

Developing an intimate relationship with God in prayer is essential to discovering God’s call. Saint Pope John Paul II wrote , “This call, this mysterious inner voice of Christ, is heard most clearly in silence and prayer. Its acceptance is an act of faith.” (Homily, February 10th 1986) We need to take time in silence to listen to the voice of God, becoming increasingly more aware of all the ways He speaks to us.
