Our Spirituality

“While venerating St. Francis de Sales, and drawing inspiration from his example, Fr. Mermier, our Founder, also took St. Ignatius of Loyola for his guide. He used quite extensively his Spiritual Exercises. The Sisters of the Cross were formed by this rigorous and dynamic pedagogy.” Historical note p. XII

We live our vocation as Sisters of the Cross at the confluence of a double spiritual heritage – Ignatian spirituality and Salesian Spirituality.General Chapter 2007 p. 7

“We, the Sisters of the Cross, today, revisiting our origin and history, recognize in our source spiritualities, a treasure which is offered to us to know the Lord and make Him known, and to witness to the liberating power of the Paschal Mystery in this world.” General chapter p. 8
