The Congregation

Today about 1500 Sisters of the Holy Cross, Menzingen, live in Europe, Asia, Latin America and Southern Africa.

We recognise and appreciate our differences in language, appearance, dress, thinking pattern and life style.

What unites us in the multiplicity of nationalities and cultures is our common origin in Menzingen (Switzerland) and the charism and spirituality of our Founders.

The Congregational Leadership Team is located in Lucerne in "Haus Bernarda".  

In this building Mother Bernarda Heimgartner, Sr Feliciana Kramer and Sr Cornelia Mäder started to teach the girls from the village of Menzingen.


Would you wish to know more about our international congregation, please look at the specific provinces.
