Charism Statement

We, the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth, are called to extend the Kingdom of God’s love among ourselves and others by living the spirit of Jesus, Mary and Joseph, whose lives were centered in the love of God and one another.

We witness to this love through dedicated service to the Church, especially in ministry to the family.

Did You Know:

The figures depicted in this bronze – the Holy Family, the Church, the earthly family were, for our Foundress, Blessed Mary of Jesus the Good Shepherd, the epitome of the charism of our Congregation. She points to the Holy Family as the model of a life lived simply in loving fidelity, openness and trust. This vision is the source and inspiration of our life and service in the Church as we reach out to families.
