Who we are
The Congregation of the Sisters of the Cross of Chavanod is an Apostolic Religious Institute, which is international and of Pontifical Right.
Our Foundress have placed us under the 'Standard of the Cross' (Fr. Peter Mermier) "To make the Good God known and lived" (Claudine Echernier)
We participate joyfully in the mystery of Jesus dead and risen in His mission in the world and we work together for the glory of God and the salvation of all "each according to her freedom and capacity".
The Cross of Christ traces for us a way of growth
to receive the fullness of God's gift, enabling us
to help all people to open themselves
to the grace of the Passion of Christ
a power always at work in the world (ROL Pg:2)
