Formation of the Laity to the Ministries

The zeal of our Foundress is not confined to her service and those of her companions.  Through the formation and the accompaniment of the laity in our ministries, Magdalene multiplies the pastoral workers in the local Church.  Throughout the history of the Institute, every Canossian community has continued the example of Magdalene to form the laity and to collaborate with them.  Our relations with our lay partners – educators, health workers, catechists, youth ministry and family life workers - are based on mutual awareness of our equal dignity as baptized persons and on our common sharing in the redemptive  mission of the Church.  All our communities are involved in the formation of our lay partners to the Canossian apostolate.
