What is a charism?
A charism is a particular aspect of the life of Jesus. Each religious congregation lives according to a unique charism. The Congregation of the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth has its source in the mystery of the Incarnation, of God coming to dwell in the person of Jesus of Nazareth. Our Foundress, Blessed Mary of Jesus the Good Shepherd, recognised the Holy Family of Nazareth as the Incarnation of Love, the reflection of the life the Holy Trinity, and the embodiment of hiddenness, joy and simplicity.
