Sisters of St.Joseph of Chambery, India

Tribute to our Founder

Tribute to our Founder

In this 405st Birth Anniversary of Fr. John Peter Medaille, every Sister of St. Joseph is challenged to reclaim her identity in the Holy Eucharist and share the Congregational Charism of COMMUNION.

In a wounded world which is in need Healing and Compassion, we long to be The Congregation of the Greatest Love of God. In the midst of our vulnerability and emptiness, we have been gifted with the sense of New Life and Grace and the promise of a broader and deeper mutuality in a time of limited and unevenly shared global resources. We ask for the grace of our Blessed Charism to educate, heal and to liberate both ourselves and our dear neighbour. We commit ourselves to a determined and purposeful reflection on our life and work. With bold faith, let us make choices and strengthen our Congregation so that we can participate in the mission of Jesus with renewed zeal and joy and become Bread, broken and shared, in our time and age!
