Latest News

We are a Congregation of women dedicated to God and the service of the Missionary Church. 
 
We ardently desire to live entirely at the service of the Kingdom of God, surrendered totally to Christ who is the centre of our lives. 
 
We seek to awaken in the faithful a greater awareness of the missionary dimension of their baptismal calling. Together with the laity we strive to meet the needs of missionaries throughout the world. 
 
Our life of consecration, our prayer and work seeks to make the Good News of God’s saving love in Jesus Christ known and loved. 

Who Are We?

At the heart of Claverian spirituality is Christ the Redeemer, icon of the Father’s love. He is the center and the reason for everything the Sisters are called to do and to be. Blessed Mary Theresa, our Foundress, was very inspired by the spirituality of St Ignatius Loyola, Founder of the Jesuits, and adopted this for her Congregation. She taught that we should work as St Ignatius advised;  as if everything depended on our efforts but, once it has been achieved, think of ourselves as mere servants.

Our Spirituality

We give our lives in the service of the Missionary Church and seek to inform and encourage all Christians to pray, and make sacrifices for the missionary work of the Church. We encourage missionary vocations and material help, the precious fruit of ecclesial collaboration between sister Churches.
