Formation of the Laity

Laity1Our Lay Canossian collaborators, friends and supporters all over the world, continue to be for us, as they were in Magdalene’s time, of vital importance for the life and development of our Canossian outreach.

From the very beginning of the Institute, Magdalene created a network of people who were ready and willing to work side by side with her to serve:

“ the poorest among the poor”.

Laity2The need to share the mission with lay partners continues to be of great value for us today. Networking with both the local church and local organizations, we train and form lay people for ministry.

Laity 3More than ever before, the Church needs today the presence and witness of lay animators, whose hearts are capableof giving with generosity.
