Sisters of the Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ
We are a Congregation of consecrated religious women founded by a mother and her daughter, Blessed Celine Borzecka and Mother Hedwig Borzecka, in Rome, Italy, on January 6, 1891. As religious sisters, we believe deeply in the presence of the Risen Christ in our lives and in our world. All that we do flows from our vowed relationship and is seen as an expression of our love for the God who loved us first. We bring a simple message of hope to those who have forgotten that God is alive and with them always. We bring a message of healing to those who suffer from life’s many hurts. This Paschal vision of hope spurs us on to carry our own personal crosses so that we too may arrive, like Jesus, at Resurrection and Glory. Thus, in dying to self each day, we rise with Christ to newness of life. Each day we are called to be vibrant witnesses of the Resurrection and empowered by the presence of the Holy Spirit. Our lives are rooted in an intense relationship with Christ, so much so, that what we do is not as important to us as who we are – women consecrated to God. Everything we do flows from this consecrated relationship. You will find Sisters of the Resurrection throughout the world, responding to the contemporary needs of the Church in the educational, health care and other ministries which God leads us to embrace.
