Building a society
of justice and love

Learn more about sisters’ ministries around the globe

Sisters of the Holy Cross focus on ministries that help build communities of justice and love, eradicate material poverty and end gender discrimination against women. The needs of people from many countries and cultures shape our missionary zeal. Our ministries respond to health and education needs; unjust social, political and economic systems; and issues such as migration, nonviolence, human trafficking and the environment.

Sisters of the Holy Cross live and work around the world as educators, nurses, administrators, counselors, social workers, parish and campus ministers, writers, attorneys, and advocates for social justice and systemic reform. We currently serve in Bangladesh, Brazil, Ghana, India, Mexico, Peru, Uganda and the United States.

Some ministries are supported by the Ministry With the Poor Fund. This fund provides annual grants for individual sisters to use in projects they are involved in personally that directly assist the materially poor, the powerless and those living on the fringes of society.
