The centre and synthesis of our apostolic mission is Jesus Christ, the revelation of the Father and the Redeemer of humankind. The deep yearning of our Foundress :

“Above all, make Jesus known and loved”.

 “No human suffering should be foreign to us”.

We recognize the face of Christ in our brothers and sisters especially the poorest. We dedicate our care and attention in order to reveal to them the love with which the Father loves them.


We promote a holistic education, especially the formation of the heart. Faithful to Magdalene’s inspiration, we help children, adolescents and youth to develop their personality according to the spirit of the Gospel.

Pastoral care of the sick

We visit and support the sick, help them to realize the redemptive value of suffering and try to reinforce their trust in God.


Evangelisation is the “heart” of all our minstries, and each one of us is called by our Charism to be Catechists

Formation of the Laity

We form the laity especially in the area of faith, so that they may become leaders and animators in the ecclesial community. We form and welcome those who feel called to live our Charism of Charity, to join our Canossian Family as Lay Canossians.

Spiritual Exercises

We assist the laity, to encounter Christ through guided retreats and spiritual exercises. We offer them the opportunity to experience God’s love for them at a deeper and more personal level.
