Our Charism, Spirit, Mission and Ministries

Our charism, the gift of the Holy Spirit which was given to our spiritual mother, St. Julie Billiart, our foundress, Hilligonde Wolbring, and our co-foundress, Elisabeth Kühling is “a deep experience of God’s goodness and provident care.” It is a gift that has been shared by all the members of our congregation throughout our history to the present day.

Our Spirit

We express our charism through a spirit of joyful simplicity in our everyday lives.

Our Mission and Ministries

Our charism and our spirit impel us to “participate in the mission of Jesus Christ, witnessing God’s goodness and provident care to others…” We devote ourselves to education in all its forms especially to catechesis and to other ministries which respond to the needs of the times, particularly those which serve people who are poor and marginalized.
