As Cluny Sisters, we participate in the mission of the universal Church. This mission is carried out in the context of particular local churches, according to the culture and the needs of the people of the different countries where the Church is situated. We form part of the local Church, and therefore need to reflect on its characteristics, and on the challenges it faces, as well as on our own role within that Church. We live our religious consecration in a particular country and culture, at a particular moment in history.

The challenge of our province is to “read the signs of the times” and to respond to God’s call within our own moment of history specifically in the NEW ZEALAND, PACIFIC ISLANDS & THE PHILIPPINES.
