Medical Mission Sisters
As Medical Mission Sisters we are called to live as a healing presence in our world today. We try to bring about a world where all people and whole of creation live in harmony and where no one is in want. We try to live as Jesus lived, with care and compassion for all.
We are women with great passion…for wholeness, for justice, for life. Like our Foundress, Anna Dengel, M.D., “it eats us up” when individuals and communities are denied the resources and opportunities they need to live as human beings.
We are a community of dedicated women with more than 500 Canonical members and 100 Associates, we share life and our own unique expertise with women, children and men on five continents today. We enter into their lives as partners, as peers, as friends. We work together with them to build one world, and be one world, where the gifts of all people, all cultures, and all of creation are affirmed and celebrated.
We are members of an international apostolic religious institute, also known as the Society of Catholic Medical Missionaries.
