one another through love." (Galatians
Our mission is to act as servants of the sacred Cross of Christ,
serving God, His people and the Church in any way in which
we are called. We seek to spread the Gospel and bring souls
to the salvation made possible through the Cross and to show
forth the love of Christ exemplified by His death and passion
on the Cross, in all that we do. We endeavour to live a life
of prayer and good works in obedience to the Rule and Constitution
of the Community, each in our own particular circumstances,
utilizing our individual God-given gifts and talents.
We are committed to upholding the historic Catholic Faith.
The discipline of community is a powerful aid in living out
this life of prayer and service.
vision and prayer of The Servants of the Sacred Cross is that
the Sisters who have been called by God to the Community will
become a strong and faithful presence of service and prayer
in parishes and communities around the world, constant in
their emulation of the love and servanthood of Our Lord Jesus
Christ. In humility and charity the Sisters seek to witness
to Jesus’ high priestly prayer, “That
they all may be one” (John 17:21). Having been originally established from within the Anglican Communion, and while retaining much of that rich heritage, SSC has been called to a wider ecumenical vision, opening membership not only to Anglican women but also to women of all Rites of the Catholic Church.
The Sisters' Rule includes a mandate of focused prayer for
priests as well as for the orthodoxy and unity of the Universal
Church, the whole Body of Christ.
