Our Identity

         Each year our newly professed sisters begin a period of professional training either as nurses, teachers or pastoral workers. The cost of their education is supplemented by various grants received from funding agencies throughout the world. In our ministerial work of promoting nonviolence, we have been asked to initiate programmes to increase peace in all the schools of the diocese of Aitape. This work will cover 61 schools with 366 teachers. Our hope and dream is to eventually bring this programme to all the villages, schools, camps and settlements. If you would like to support us in any of these endeavours, we would be most grateful. Further information can be obtained or contributions can be sent to our Treasurer:
