African Missions

Our Sisters in Central Africa are in Kigali, Butare, Bungwe and Rulindo, in Rwanda and Ngara, Tanzania. The novices and postulants are in Butare and we have a dispensary/clinic in Bungwe. We have been in this strife-ridden country since the 1970s.

Ten years ago the Sisters came to the Democratic Republic of the Congo, in Buturande, where they have a nutrition center and clinic for mothers and babies.

In both Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, where there is tension between the Hutu and Tutsi tribes, we bring our charism of “unity in diversity.” We live in community, Sisters of many different nationalities with our African Sisters of both tribes because the love of Christ can unite us.
In October 2005, our Sisters founded a new mission in Ngara, Tanzania. This is our first foundation in an African country where the second language is English. Our Sisters are helping in parish cathechesis, but they have also noticed the great needs of the "street children." They are extending their attention and their compassion to these very poor among God's children.
