The Capuchin Sisters of Nazareth is a new community of apostolic – contemplatives following in the footsteps of St. Francis of Assisi. Like the Poverello they have a great devotion to our Blessed Mother and complete fidelity to the Holy Roman Catholic Church.
The Sisters wear a simple but dignified habit. It consists of a brown tunic tied with a cord and a black veil (the novices wear a white veil). As a sign of their devotion and love for Our Lady, a wooden rosary hangs from their cords. The cord has three knots that represent the promises the Sisters make
in their Religious profession – poverty, chastity and obedience.
Jesus tells us how He rewards people like the Sisters: “There is no one who has given up house or wife or brothers or parents or children for the sake of the kingdom of God who will not receive back an overabundant return in this present age and eternal life in the age to come. (Lk 18:29)”
