e are an international Order of the Catholic Church of the Eastern Rite. We are formed in its tradition, discipline, and spirituality, as well as by the teaching of St. Basil the Great and the Eastern Fathers.

    The Rule of St. Basil places great emphasis on love of God and of neighbour. The education of youth is one of the services recommended by St. Basil. We also work in charitable institutions, hospitals, engage in parochial work, catechize, administer religious institutions, issue publications, write icons and do liturgical sewing. We are at the service of Universal Church especially of the Eastern Rite.

    On this website you can find information about our founders St. Basil and St. Macrina, the history of the Order and each locations' ministries in which Sisters of St. Basil are engaged throughout the world.
