Lay Canossians live the spirituality of the day-to-day ordinary life, having Jesus Crucified as the foundation and loving the poor and the little ones. They live as instruments of peace, of unity and of hope in the family, in the world of work, in society and in the local church.

Mexico Lay Canossians
The Lay Canossians from Chihuahua are very involved in their communities and parishes helping in so many various ways. Sister Stella Negi (top far right) traveled to Chihuahua and Monterrey this past May to assist with the Lay Canossians celebration of vows and renewals. Sister Lupita Chaparro (top left) also was there to give her support.
Thank you Lay Canossians for all the good work you do.
One person can make a difference in making Jesus known – Around the world, the Canossian Sisters and Lay Volunteers make a difference by spreading Christ’s Word and Love through VOICA – Canossian International Voluntary Service.
VOICA - What is it?
The Canossian International Voluntary Service, is a prophetic expression of the charism of St. Magdalene of Canossa that seeks to involve the laity – men and women, young and adult, from all parts of the world, in the Universal Church’s great mission of human promotion and evangelization, forming their hearts so that they can live in solidarity with members of their own community, serving the poor...in “gratuitous Love.”
There are four pillars of VOICA: Spirituality, Formation, Community and Service.
VOICA offers both a month of summer immersion in a mission project, as well as the possibility of long-term international volunteer service. “Adopt a Volunteer” supports volunteers that commit to at least one year of service in mission. There are currently
17 long-term VOICA volunteers working in Tanzania, Togo, Malawi, Egypt and East Timor. With your contribution, you can participate in mission with the volunteers even if you can’t be at the mission yourself.
