Our Charism

The charism of religious congregation refers to the distinct spirit that animates a religious community and gives it a particular character. Thus the Bannabikira’s charism is what it takes to be a Munnabikira Sister. Therefore our Congregation was founded to carry out apostolic work. Our aim is to spread the kingdom of God in effort to bring about the salvation of souls through the four major ministries: catechesis, education, health care and social development.

But what makes our apostolic work unique is the fact that all is done in the Spirit of Motherhood of the Blessed Virgin Mary who by her very act of giving birth to Jesus brought hope of salvation to the human race. Likewise every Munnabikira is a sign of that hope for the people whose lives she touches as she ministers to them, Luke 8:19 -21 and John 19:25 -27.
