The Croatian Sisters of the Adorers of the Blood of Christ spirituality is based on the belief that when Jesus died on the cross, his blood poured forth into all of humanity. The purpose of the apostolic congregation was the adoration of Christ crucified and risen, and collaboration with him in his work of redemption.
The foundress of the Congregation, St Maria De Mattias, wanted to help bring about ‘that beautiful order of things which the great Son of God came to establish in his blood’. She founded the Congregation of the Blood of Christ in 1834 in Italy, coming to Croatia in 1879. Now the Sisters Adorers serve the Church around the world through various ministries according to the needs of time and place. In Australia the Adorers are found in Blacktown, St John’s Park and Adelaide.
