Sisters of the Holy Cross

“He who speaks of the love of GOD cannot deny the Cross.”


Together with our holy Angels, we, Sisters of the holy Cross, learn daily from JESUS Crucified to live a life of great love. On the Cross, we find the answer for the deep desires of our heart.
We like to help young women to answer the questions of their lives so that, in a dialogue of prayer with God, they can open themselves to a great project of God as Mary of Nazareth did, when she admired the greater plan of God with her : "How is this possible?" (Lk 1, 34).



Your vocation is the providential thought of your Creator, it is His idea-plan, like a dream found in God's heart, because you are found in His heart.

God wants your life-plan to be different and specific, but mostly, He wants that you come close to JESUS!

And why not: to follow HIM more closely in the consecrated life!





To what does Jesus call you?

To follow Him so as to be and act like Him. More particularly, to live the same relationships that He has with the Father and with all people:
to welcome life as a gift from the hands of the Father in order to "lose" and pour out again this gift on those to whom the Father has entrusted you.


This is the beauty of life of the Sister of the holy Cross:
she “pours out” her life like JESUS for others, especially for the priests.


For us Sisters, Mary is the image of the divine choice, which was made from eternity, and was totally free, mysterious and loving.

A choice that goes beyond what you can imagine for yourself:

JESUS asks you for the impossible and demands only one thing, the courage to trust GOD.
