The Canossian Daughters of Charity, Servants of the Poor is an International Missionary Congregation of Women founded by St. Magdalene of Canossa. Our actions arise from our identity born of Christ Crucified, the Greatest Love. We are called to journey in simplicity, sharing a common life at the service of our brothers and sisters on every continent.
We are called to contemplate, experience and share the unconditional love of the Father for every person; love that is expressed to the full in the “most loving, most generous and most patient spirit” of the Son who gave His life freely for all.
We share in the saving mission of Jesus, seeking to take on the same traits of charity, gentleness, humility, meekness, zeal and fortitude. We follow the example of Mary, Mother of Charity at the foot of the cross and draw our inspiration from her.
