In the Footsteps of our Foundress St.
Magdalen of Canossa
In 2008, the Canossian Daughters of Charity celebrates the 200th
anniversary of their congregation.
True to the Canossian spirit of humility, a
large-scale celebration in Hong Kong was called off as the Sisters
decided that they would instead donate the money to the victims of the
Sichuan earthquakes in May. As a result, thanks-giving masses were held
throughout the year at different Canossian institutions.
Today, the Canossian Institute spans across
33 countries with 2930 sisters in 347 communities. As the year closes,
we are reminded again to be thankful for the unconditional love that our
Foundress, St. Magdalen of Canossa, had passed onto us through the
Canossian Sisters. May God bless all our Sisters and continue to look
after them in their meaningful mission of love.
