Welcome to St. Francis Xavier Province of the Canossian Daughters of Charity


Foundress Of The Daughters and Sons of Charity

The Institute of the Canossian Daughters of Charity springs from the ardent heart of St. Magdalene of Canossa – Foundress and Mother of the Institute.
The Life of St. Magdalene of Canossa can be summed up in two virtues:
A Charity that never tires of reaching out to the lowliest to share with them not only the riches of Life, but the well-being of Life itself. Hers was a life spent in Love, purified by sorrow, consumed by the Passion for souls.
