Welcome to the Web site of the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth
The Congregation of the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth is an international apostolic congregation founded in 1875. Sisters live and serve in 170 communities in 13 countries on 5 continents. The Generalate is located in Rome, Italy. The youngest Nazareth mission homes are the homes in Kazakhstan (Asia) and in Ghana (Africa). The Congregation is preparing also to carry our charism to Vietnam.
We, the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth, are called to extend the Kingdom of God's love among ourselves and others by living the spirit of Jesus, Mary and Joseph, whose lives were centered in the love of God and one another.
We witness to this love through dedicated service to the Church, especially in ministry to the family.
