About the origin of the Community of the Disciples of the Cross Sisters
The Community of the Disciples of the Cross Sisters has been a Polish religious institute based on the diocesan law since September 14, 2015. The institute is of an apostolic character and its members make religious public vows. The foundress of the community is Sr. Helena Christiana Mickiewicz.
At the time when the teaching of the Second Vatican Council stressed a special role of lay people in the Church and the world, there was a need for a practical reading of this call which the Holy Spirit addressed to the Church. In response to this, a community of sisters was created. The Disciples of the Cross Sisters offer their lives for those who are far away from God and form lay apostles in this spirit.
