How we answer our call

About Us

We, Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth (CSFN), are an international Roman Catholic congregation of vowed religious women dedicated to spreading the Kingdom of God’s love, particularly within families. We do this by serving families through active ministry in schools, hospitals, parishes, prisons and social service agencies. We also spread the Kingdom through our daily living in a community of prayer and commitment to God and the Holy Family.

Today, this vision of Nazareth is being lived by some 1,200 sisters serving in 13 countries; we are joined by 700 lay associates.

Holy Family Province, the U.S. province of the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth, has some 230 sisters serving in Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania,  and Texas. The Provincialate is located in Des Plaines, IL, a Chicago suburb.

Nazareth in the World

Our Congregation has seven provinces, including the U.S. province. We also have mission homes in Israel and Ghana, and a region in the Ukraine. Under the direction of the CSFN General Administration in Rome, our Sisters in these areas dedicate themselves to spreading the kingdom of God’s love.
