Canossian Fathers and Brothers

Canossian fathers1The confident abandonment of these our first brothers to God and their lives, deprived of all means and of human securities, brought our Institute to experience like Christ, that unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies it cannot bear fruit.
Today that seed after 176 years of struggle has produced and is producing fruit in Italy, Brazil, Philippines, India, and Tanzania.

They witness to the love of Christ Crucified by responding generously to the needs of the times and the place where they are, in accordance with the local church, through activities such as:

Catechesis
Assistance to the Youth
Youth Centers (Oratory)
Works of Charity towards the poor and the least.
