Welcome to the Website of The Sisters of The Cross of Chavanod, Province of Amravati.

The Congregation of The Sisters of the Cross of Chavanod is an Apostolic Religious Institute which is international and of Pontifical Right. The Province of Amravati was founded in 1886. Presently, we are in 15 countries on four continents – Asia, Africa, Europe and South America.

We are engaged in different ministries such as Education, Health, Social, Pastoral and Family Apostolate. The mission of the Sisters of the Cross is to reveal to all, the merciful love of the Father and the liberating power of the Paschal Mystery. They give priority to the poor and the oppressed, especially women and youth.

Vision

To make the good God known and loved

Charism

“To participate in the mystery of Jesus dead and risen In His Mission in the world for the salvation of all”. (ROL. 1)

Our vocation is to live joyfully the Paschal Mystery of Christ, with a particular emphasis on kenosis. The assiduous contemplation of Christ forms in us the same attitudes as those of the Saviour. It draws us to live more deeply the spirit of detachment and total surrender of ourselves. The specific feature of our charism is seen clearly in the choice of our fundamental text: Phil 2: 6-11.
Mission

“ To reveal to all the merciful love of the Father and the liberating power of the Paschal Mystery.”

We, the Sisters of the Cross, consecrated for the mission, collaborate with others in this work of salvation. In creative fidelity, we work for the cause of humanity, especially for the women and the poor, in solidarity with those who promote peace, justice and reconciliation. We journey with our sisters and brothers enabling them to recognize and receive God’s love in its fullness, to fulfil our vision to make the good God known and loved. Thus our mission is to reveal to all the merciful love of the Father and the liberating power of the Paschal Mystery.
