Lay Canossian Association
Magdalene of Canossa was moved from the very outset of her work, to identify and form lay people who were attracted by this same charism and would help her to reach out to people in need in those areas where the sisters were not able to go. She understood that their presence and witness were indispensable to extend the charity of Christ everywhere.
The members of the Lay Canossian Association are lay people who are called by vocation to live the charism and spirituality of the Canossian Family in a secular society. In the simplicity of words and actions, they are called to live the Love of the Crucified Lord in the concrete realities of everyday life and they pay particular attention to those who are considered the least in society, those living on the margins and those who have no one to turn to. The association is spread all over the world.

The Secular Missionaries of St.Magdalene of Canossa.
They are lay people in the world, and are called by vocation to live a life of Consecration to God in the world, outside Convent walls! They are called to live the charism and spirituality of the Canossian Family in secular society. They set apart time for their own formation, intense moments of prayer and Group meetings that would illumine their lives.
