Welcome to the website of the Dutch province


We, SSpS: Holy Spirit Missionary Sisters are ... 
a religious missionary community of 3150 women in an international congregation, called to share in the universal mission of God in Jesus, in the dynamism of the Holy Spirit.

We believe ...
in the beautiful story of Jesus ...
listening,  responding,  risking beyond known cultures and familiar grounds,  coming together,  forging friendships,  journeying as one community ... to be voices that echo the message of Hope, Joy and Life ...
to bear witness to the Love and Unity of the Triune God ...

Our motto: 
May the Holy Triune God live in our hearts
and in the hearts of all peoples 
contains in a nutshell our Spirituality and Charism.  
 

Mission is the origin and purpose of our Congregation. Bearing a universal character to it, sisters from different parts of the world, are called to witness to the communion of the Triune God, in the diversity of cultures and nationalities. And as missionaries, we are called to embrace all people across cultures and faith traditions. With the worldwide nature of our mission, internationality is essential to our community living.
