Our founder, Father John Baptist Debrabant, encouraged the first sisters to be mindful of the poor as they began their work and mission “to be at the heart of world revealing God’s love.”
We Holy Union Sisters hold sacred our charism of union and hear it now as an urgent call to live in solidarity, interdependence, and justice with all peoples and cultures. We advocate on behalf of women and children; we work for the integrity of creation and collaborate with others to change oppressive systems and structures. (Collegial Assembly Document 2005)
The United States Province of the Holy Union Sisters has taken a Corporate Stance against trafficking of women and children. We offer you some resources where you can learn more about modern-day slavery and take action.
The United Nations General Assembly has declared 2013 as the United Nations International Year of Water Cooperation. March 22, will be dedicated to water cooperation.
As Holy Union Sisters our desire for union impels us to collaborate with others. As members of the Non-Governmental Organization, UNANIMA International, we work at the United Nations with other congregations of religious women to bring about systemic change.
