ENCA – Enlace Canossiano America – (Canossian Network in America)
In response to the thrust of “Ecclesia in America” we seek a common journey to live our Charism of Charity, witnessing to a life of Communion. We want to live the “spirituality of communion”, overcoming prejudices, and nurturing our awareness of being Canossian Sisters in America. We are called to be “prophetic signs” when:
faithful to our common Mission to “make Jesus known and loved,”with particular attention to the poorest.
- we value and celebrate our cultural diversity, respectful of the rhythm of inculturation of each Province;
- we are channels of reconciliation and unity;
- we promote justice and peace, and safeguard the integrity of creation;
ENCA is the union of the three Canossian Provinces in America - Brazil, Argentina and North America. It includes all the Canossian Sisters residing in America.
It is an organization that promotes animation, shares common ground, research and reflection on the life and mission of the Canossian Sisters in America.
