Welcome to the new Cabrini World website.
“Now is the Favorable Time.”
(2 Corinthians 6:2)
The Missionary Sisters are a worldwide, mission-driven and faith-based congregation of Catholic women. The Institute was founded in 1880 by a passionate and bold woman – Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini – whose one desire was to communicate, demonstrate, and make known the love and mercy of God through tangible acts of love, mercy and justice.
Form its humble beginnings in Italy, the Institute now exists in 17 countries on six continents. In a dynamic effort to respond to the unmet needs of the many people excluded from basic human rights, the Missionary Sisters sponsor many endeavors, including: schools, hospitals and clinics, spirituality centers; low income housing for the elderly; and community-based immigrant and social services.
Our Cabrinian charism
Let us continue spreading the charism of Mother Cabrini “to the ends of the earth”.
As vowed religious women, we MSCs have responded to God’s call in our lives. In rhythms of dialog, silence, prayer, faith-sharing, work and leisure, we live co-responsibly in community as adult women committed to serving those in need, particularly, women, children, frail elders and immigrants.
Cabrini Lay Missionary
We are women and men who desire to live out their Christian Baptismal commitment as a special call from God, in order to grow spiritually, to witness Gospel values, and to be agents of transformation in the world. CLMs hear and respond to their call by committing themselves to embrace and give witness to the love of the Heart of Jesus, according to the living legacy and spirit of St. Frances Xavier Cabrini.
As Missionaries of the Sacred Heart of Jesus our life and spirit flow from this missionary identity expressed in prayer, community and in ministry. Every vowed member participates fully in this identity. At the same time, laity are invited and encouraged to be Co-Sharers in Mission as Cabrini Lay Missionaries, Cabrini Companions, collaborators, volunteers and loyal friends. Together, we strive to live the gospel values which we learn from the life of Frances Cabrini.
