Our Family

APOSTOLIC SISTERS:  

Faithful to the Charism and Spirit of the Holy Family Association promote sustainable development in the ministries of Education, Health, Social and Life-giving initiation at all levels as per surprising needs arise in today’s society.

CONTEMPLATIVE SISTERS: 

Contemplative sisters dwelling in the monasteries serve as Power House to the association, the Church and the society.  In prayer and contemplation, they encircle the whole cosmos to bring about harmonious existence with the Triune God. In prayer, work and relationships they maintain and witness the PRIMACY OF GOD throughout their life.

CONSECRATED SECULARS: 

These sisters affirm and deepen their Baptismal commitment and live it more intensely.  They consecrate their life to God by 3 Vows of Obedience, Chastity and Poverty but owing to family or other commitments unable to live in community. It is a discreet vocation as leaven in the dough, so that the member may have more freedom of presence in action.

LAY ASSOCIATES:  

Men and women, married or single, young, middle age, old, all have common identity as Holy Family Lay Associates. Drawn by the spirituality of our Founder they live the charism of communion in their families, work places, and local communities.

PRIEST ASSOCIATES:  

An international group of Diocesan Priests, who, while living in obedience  and availability of their Bishop and united with their presbyterium, freely choose to follow the charism and spirituality of the Holy Family.  They live in greater depth their priestly commitment within the Holy Family Association.  They pledge themselves to be the voice of the needy and are concerned for the promotion of  justice, peace and reconciliation.

The 5 Vocations in the Association of the Holy Family of Bordeaux is indeed  a legion of heroic presence and service in our planet earth!
