Our Association

In March 1975 a decree forming the Association of Canonesses of the Holy Sepulchre brought together Communities of Canonessesof the Holy Sepulchre from different parts of the world under common Constitutions.

The Association now consists of 9 autonomous Priories in Africa, South America and Europe.

Walking Madonna - Salisbury Cathedral

The walking Madonna (Salisbury Cathedral) -
she is walking to bring the hope of the Resurrection to others.

May we tread in her steps, filled with light and love and joy, for the Dayspring from on high has visited us, and Christ is risen - Alleluia.  Amen.

In addition to its juridical functions and shared Constitutions, the Association exists to stimulate a shared life and reflection from within the spirituality and common aims of the Priories.  

There are meetings and exchanges between Priories across the continents, with formal and informal visits being quite regular.

 An international Prioresses' Conference takes place every ten months and an international General Chapter every six years.

The reflective days of the General Chapter are open to every Sister of the Association and to associated Lay People.
