QuiNhon Missionary Sisters of the Holy Cross

The QuiNhon Missionary Sisters of the Holy Cross are the Lovers of the Holy Cross of QuiNhon originating in Viet Nam founded by Bishop Lambert De La Motte, a French Missionary in 1671.

In Viet Nam, the sisters do ministries in eight different Dioceses: Da Nang, Qui Nhon Don tum, Nha Trang, Da Lat, Phan Thiet, Xua Loc and Sai Gon. There are 326 professed Sisters, 36 novices and 304 postulants.

In the US Province, the Sisters do ministries in the Archdiocese of San Francisco, Diocese of Oakland and Diocese of San Jose, California. The followings are some ministries in which the Sisters serve: parish ministry, religious education and education, pastoral care, nursing, counseling and spiritual direction. The QuiNhon Missionary Sisters of the Holy Cross-US Province have 25 professed Sisters and 4 postulants.

The Mother House is in Qui Nhon-Viet Nam and the US Province’s House is located at 1685 Humphrey Dr. Concord, California.

The spirituality is briefly summarized in the phrase: “Jesus Christ crucified is the object of our minds and hearts.” In accepting Jesus Christ as our only objective, this love should have a priority in the life of the followers. This is the aspect of saving through sacrifice in the Lambertian spirit of apostolate. In summary, these are three aspects of Lambertian spirituality: the spirit of contemplation, of mortification (sacrifice) and the apostolate (missionary).
