Who We Are

The Order of the Most Holy Savior of St. Bridget is present today in Europe, Asia, in the Middle East, North America, Central America and Cuba.

The happy synthesis between active and contemplative life has allowed a balance that, well before the Second Vatican Council has characterized the nascent communities because it is based on a great care to the Word of God, in the exercise of the apostolate and in religious formation, on a Cristo-centric, understood as the lunatic of Church life and on a strong emphasis of the Eucharistic dimension.

La Storia

The spiritual leaders of the sisters of Holy Mother Elizabeth Hesselblad were able to interpret the thought and spirit of their Founder, developing both ecumenical and missionary anxiety.

(Abb.Gen.: 1979-2016)

With the Abbess General Mother Tekla Famiglietti, as the helm of the Order from 1979 to 2016, the religious life in its deep sense has been consolidated and developed with a great urge to perfection that the religious state bound by the three evangelical vows requires. In a climate of trust and cooperation between the various members of the Order and in a great spirit of faith, the climate of fraternal charity, formation, contemplation and trust for the growth of the Order has been intensified, which since 2016 has been governed by the present Abbess General, Mother M. Fabia Kattakayam.
