U.K, Ireland, USA and the Netherlands

Although living in different countries, our sisters are engaged in similar ministries which have developed from the original charism of the Congregation. Sisters serve in various ministries in Caritas, Diocese of Salford.

Sisters also assist in local parishes providing religious education and pastoral assistance, are university and hospice chaplains, offer spiritual direction and educational programmes, and do social work. Mission awareness is an integral part of our ministry, especially through our mission appeals. An Irish sister works closely with Misean Cara to provide much needed funding for some of the projects administered by our sisters in Kenya.

Our retired sisters in the various countries have a wonderful and powerful ministry of prayer for the people with whom they have lived and served and also for the needs of the world, particularly for those who are the most marginalised.
