The Canossians trace their origin to Magdalen of Canossa, a religious sister canonized by Pope John Paul II in 1988.
The Canossian missions in Singapore started with the arrival of 4 young Sisters from Macau, at the invitation of the Bishop Medeiros, the Bishop of Macau, who was in charge of the Portuguese Mission in Singapore. Arriving on 11th December 1894, they took over the running of St Anthony’s Girls School, originally started by the Portuguese Mission in 1879. This gave rise to the Sisters being called “Portuguese Nuns” and St. Anthony’s being known as “Portuguese Convent”.
