We are called to contemplate, experience and share God's love for every person. The most amiable and most generous Spirit of Jesus, crucified and risen, is the measure of our love.



Canossian Spirituality


The Canossians premise is simply to “make Jesus known and loved” in the spirit of Jesus Crucified, in the footsteps of St Magdalene of Canossa and under the maternal cloak of Mary, Mother of love. Thus we are yours… Daughters of Charity, Servants of the Poor! We warmly welcome you to our Canossian world!

Provincial Leader’s Message (extract from Canorita 2017)


2018 is here! My mandate is ending soon. I remember the reluctance when I stepped into the role as Provincial Leader, feeling uncertain about what the next few years would bring. Where would we be heading in our journey for another three years? When I proposed the 120th Anniversary celebration to commemorate the arrival of our first missionaries, there were apprehensions. But I was confident that God’s grace is with me. Hey! I kept reminding Sisters His grace is with each of us. 


Through the years, I am deeply touched by God’s love for humanity. Our Canossian Saints responded to His love as they built God’s Kingdom here on earth. Mother Luigia Grassi reminded us “Now, it is your turn!” The first missionaries brought the Canossian charism to our part of the world. The work is not completed yet. The Sisters, our predecessors and present generation, in partnership with the lay, are called to be witnesses of God’s love in our world and society. We all work as ONE Canossian family. As a Province we have been reminding ourselves that we need to work together with one heart and one will, building our lives on this foundation…


One Love One Mission One Canossian

What’s the Meaning of Life?
By Sister Geraldine Tan
Executive Director, St Joseph’s Home


The journey of life and death is unique to each and every one of us. We share the journey with our
friends and loved ones but each of us walk away with a different interpretation and so, we make do
with different meanings. At journey’s end, the path changes all of us, for better or for worse. Such is
the gift of dying.​
