The 125th birthday of our Founder, Anna Dengel.

On March 16 Medical Mission Sisters and Associates are celebrating the 125th birthday of our Founder, Anna Dengel.  Born on March 16, 1892, in Steeg, Austria, Anna was the oldest of nine children.  Because her own mother died when she was a young girl, she was especially moved by the unmet health, education and development needs of women, wherever they happened to live.
