Mission of the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth

Who are the sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth?

The sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth are an international apostolic congregation of vowed women religious. They believe that the Holy Family of Nazareth, three persons in communion with God and each other, obedient and faithful to the will of God, reveals the profound reality that God is present in the most simple and ordinary experiences of human life.

What is Their Mission?

This vision, which so captivated the foundress, Blessed Mary of Jesus the Good Shepherd (Francis Siedliska), is the source and inspiration for their life and service. Sharing in Jesus’ mission of spreading the Kingdom of God’s love, they engage in a variety of ministries with and in the Church. Mindful that it is in an environment of love that persons come to fullness of life, they witness a family spirit among themselves, and are dedicated to the moral and religious renewal of family life. They are committed to creating communities of love and hope which celebrate the oneness of the human family.

Therefore, the Sisters’ mission is to spread the Kingdom of God among themselves and then to promote it among others, particularly among families.
