Canossian Sisters lead lives of prayer, community and ministry. Prayer takes the priority in our lives, conscious of the importance of deepening our relationship with God. We live in community, supporting each other in our common mission of making Jesus known and loved.
Inspired by a desire to spread God’s love to as many as possible, Canossian Sisters in Australia are involved in the following ministerial services:
- Early Child Care
- Pastoral Care of the Sick
- Assistance to Migrants and Refugees
- Aged Care
- Sacramental Preparation and Catechesis
- Home Visitation
- Youth Ministry
- Social Work
- Hospital Chaplaincy
- Spiritual Direction
- Secondary School Teaching
- Pastoral Care to Ethnic Communities
- Work with the Homeless
We believe that, whatever work we are involved in, we are called to be a sign and presence of the Love of Jesus that makes no distinction and pays particular attention to those who are marginalized or oppressed.
