On March 18, 2017 the Congregation welcomed women religious delegates from the UN Commission on the Statutes of Women at the Congregational Assembly. These Sisters visited our Motherhouse and presented on their ministries that help empower women and children around the globe.

The Sisters represented many countries and have such diverse ministries – from preserving the language of Native Americans in Montana; to standing with women and girls as they face the challenges of Islamic rule in Pakistan; to the the Vietnamese Sisters who boast 472 members, 98 aspirants, 28 novices and 97 temporarily professed who run entirely free programs in healthcare, education and more.

A special thank you to Sisters Juliana Idoko and Clementina Oti fromNigeria; Sr. Rukhsana Yaqoob from Pakistan; Sr. Emmanuel Yen Do from Vietnam; Sr. Helena Im from Mexico; Sr. Laura Nino from Colombia; Sr. Helen Mary Harmey from Ireland; Sr. Judy Morris from Columbus, OH and Sr. Margaret Hillary from Grand Rapids, MO.
