Sponsorship is a relationship... a relationship of stewardship to insure fidelity to the mission of the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth and the mission of the sponsored institution.
The sisters on whose shoulders we stand and the lay partners who have joined us on the way as co-ministers and friends in the Lord continue to nurture a legacy where "family is the heart of our mission."
The mission envisioned by Blessed Mary of Jesus the Good Shepherd (Frances Siedliska), foundress of the Congregation of the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth, finds a dwelling place in ministry. Like her, we offer our prayer of thanksgiving to God for the many and varied expressions of the Nazareth mission in ministry, blessings that have shaped our today and help fashion the works of the Church for tomorrow.
