The Sisters of the Resurrection were called into existence by the design and providence of God in 1891 when two women, Celine and Hedwig Borzecka, began the Congregation in Rome, Italy.
The congregation has homes in Europe, South America, Australia, the United States, and Canada. Faithful to the Church and responsive to its contemporary needs, the Sisters of the Resurrection bring God's hope and love to all they meet in the educational, health care and other ministries which God leads them to embrace. Called to be vibrant witnesses of the Risen Lord and empowered by the presence of the Holy Spirit, the sisters' lives are rooted in a deep prayer life. They take time each day, both communally and personally, to drink deeply of their relationship with God in order to bring Jesus to others. With St. Paul they echo the hymn of Resurrection, "I live now, not I, but Christ lives in me." (Gal. 2:20)
In their Charism Statement is written: "As Sisters of the Resurrection we participate in a special way in the Paschal Mystery in which the love of the Triune God is fully revealed. We respond to this love by going with Christ through the cross and death to resurrection and glory."
The Sisters of the Resurrection welcome women who desire to consecrate their lives completely to God.
