Following the example of St. Francis of Assisi we respond to the prophetic call of Jesus to rebuild the society by living the Paschal Mystery.

Mission Statement:

“That they may have life and have it in abundance” (Jn.10:10). This Gospel vision is for us Holy Cross Sisters of the Central Indian Province is a promise, a challenge and a programme for life.

We believe that we are called to collaborate with God to bring life into the death situations of today’s society in which we live, transforming it through Gospel values. 

We respond to this call by committing ourselves to the service of humanity especially of the female youth, women, the sick and the marginalized. The Council of the Congregation 2010 reminds that “this is a call to move from a lifestyle of convenience and compromise to being signs of contradiction. This call finds its expression in our spirituality, attitudes, lifestyle, ministries and policies”. We live this call out of love for Jesus the Crucified and Risen Christ, finding God’s will in the needs of the time and living out the spirituality and charism of our Founders.
