Enter into our new site! We are very happy to open our "home" and offer a moment of encounter of our FAMILY.
In different places all over the world the year of Consecrated Life begins with celebrations, prayer sevices and commitment to enliven our mission.
The objectives pointed out for this year are:
Live out the present time with passion, evangelizing our vocation and bear witness to the beauty of the following Christ in the world, in so may different forms of consecration.
Being aware of our claretian charismatic character to "search in everything the conversion of all consecrated persons devoted to the service of God" (Goal and Aim), we want to correspond to this convocation of the Holy Father, in communion with all consecrated people, to bless, praise and give thanks to God, for His call to love and serve.

The Entities and communities are carrying out various activities all over the claretian world in the process of discernment as we are on the way of the Restructuring Project.
Here we share two recent experiences of African Delegation and of Formation Community in Indonesia.
The superiors, administrators of the African Delegation gathered to study the legal issues, implication of civil and canon law in the life of the communities in relationship to the customs and properties. In the second part of the session the sisters had their spiritual retreat - opportunity to deepen and strengthen in communion the spirituality and fraternity.
The community of Jogjakarta in Indonesia has their retreats program to work on the importance of formation team working, sharing this experience both the community and formandies. Building up the community from the beginnings of the insertion in the community is basic for the claretian spirituality and misison.

On 8th of November 2014 we the Claretian Sisters in Sri Lanka started a new mission in the diocese of Chilaw, Parish Kotttapitiya. The blessing of the house, done by the Bishop Valence Mendis marked a joyful and historical moment for our Congregation extending our claretian presence and service for the evangelization. The people of Kottapitiya Parish and the Diocese of Chilaw expressed their support and help.
We felt the pastoral care of the Shepherd of the Diocese, the support of the Parish Priest and parishioners. The new community formed by sisters Thushari, Roshani and Robecca will attend the pastoral needs especially of the minorities and youth, in this coastal zone on the western side of the Island.
In the starting of the new mission the sisters from the first community in Colombo were present together with the Claretian fathers and other religious.

The community of Mysore in India has celebrated the beginning of the Novitiate of Martina and Soranya the same day of the anniversary of the Foundation. Together with them the congregational community is renewed as they will be enriched by the fidelity of sisters growing as Apostles of the Gospel.
The community of Sri Lanka is glad to welcome new four postulants. We are grateful to their families who have been generous offering their daughters for the service of the Lord and the Church in our Congregation. The Feast of the Birthday of Virgin Mary we say with Her “My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord” and thank God for all the wonderous works that she has done to Shanthi, Dayola Vigini, and Jayanayagi. The community will make them easy the path to say “YES” always to follow the Lord in love.
We thank the Lord for the gift of vocation and perseverance and the sisters who were dedicated to form them in the way of Lord.
Today we celebrate the anniversary of the Foundation Decree of our Congregation. It happened on 25th of August 1855 in Santiago de Cuba.
In the Autobiography the Mother Foundress gives evidence of the immediate circumstances of the day the Founder, Archbishop Claret signed the Decree of the Foundation of our Institute. The itinerary described in paragraphs 174 to 225 of the Autobiography, reflects the framework of the talks and prayers of the Founders, but especially the docility of both to God's Will. It was not and easy common search of the "trace of God on His Work". She acknowledges this moments as paradigmatic: "I say this for those who may come, so that learn to hope in God against all hope." (Aut. MP 218)
Hope in God against all hope became a motto of the life of claretian sisters. In our days we need to renew this setpoint, as the experience of faith and Provindece of God, so that we can share it in our mission.

In this chapel (of our Lady of Cloister – Cathedral of Tarragona) still today we do hear the words that sounded on the day of Assumption of Mary 1851: …
“...Cross the seas
Go to any part of the world
Without divisions among us…
Offering ourselves to God, ready to endure any work
For the sake of love of Christ”. (Autobiography MAParis)
These are our beginnings, beginnings of shared determination, of the missionary community that was born and is being strengthened in the fidelity to God’s will.
Happy Feast day to all sisters and all those who share with us the missionary life!
Renewing with joy our commitment of following Jesus, let us pray for each other; let’s pray for the congregational journey of restructuration.
On this day our Foundress Antonia Paris gathered 4 girls with the readiness to leave the country and follow the way God has manifested them giving foundations to the new missionary religious community of claretian sisters.
