Madagascar & Comoros

In 1950 the sending of Sisters to the diocese of Ambanja was both the fulfillment of a promise made in thanksgiving for the protection of the motherhouse during WWII and a response to Pope Pius XI’s call to universal mission of the Church..

Today about 100 Sisters in 21 communities are present in Madagascar. Most live and work in the North of the island and they serve also in Moroni, in the neighboring Comoros Islands.

The Sisters are involved in:

  • Elementary, junior high and high schools

  • Collaboration with organizations: VOZAMA (basic education for children in poor areas), ASA (re-settlement of homeless families)
  • Centers for women’s development
