We, Missionaries of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in communion with the lay people co-responsible for the Cabrinian work, as disciples following Jesus and facing the current reality of the world, our Institute and the calls of the Church, want to walk in synodality over the next six years as a:
from the XVI General Chapter Conslusions
Global, ecclesial and inclusive community, continuing the legacy received from Mother Cabrini, in order to respond to emerging challenges in the fields of education, health, social projects and various forms of pastoral care, carrying out coresponsible actions in favor of people’s dignity.
Our mission is to witness Gospel values by being bearers of Christ’s love on behalf of the vulnerable, strengthening our service and commitment to the defense of human dignity, care for the planet and a culture of peace.
Mission Expressed Through Cabrinian Charism
Mother Cabrini left a tremendous legacy to her daughters, the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Though she did leave a distinguished network of schools, orphanages, and hospitals that would need the continued leadership, care, and maintenance of the Missionary Sisters in concert with dedicated lay people, it was not merely a legacy of brick and mortar. Much more precious than buildings, the heritage that Mother Cabrini entrusted to her daughters was her charism of love and missionary zeal.
As Missionaries of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, our life and spirit flow from a missionary identity expressed in prayer, in community, and in ministry. Our actions flow from values found in the life and teaching of Jesus. We strive to respond to others with compassion and to serve with excellence. We seek to communicate God’s personal love in ways that touch hearts, inspire deeper relationships with God, and foster the authentic human and spiritual development of ourselves and others. This is the Cabrinian mission.
Beyond humanitarian motives, this sense of mission embraces the personal conviction that our service—in education, healthcare, eldercare, social work, retreats, parish and youth ministry, and our work in local and foreign cultures—is the continuation of Jesus’ own mission of bringing God’s love to the world.
There are three ways to join us as a Missionary: joining the congregation as a sister, joining us as a Cabrini Lay Missionary, or joining us as a lay collaborator.
