About us


As Medical Mission Sisters we are called to live as a healing presence in our world today. We try to live as Jesus lived, with care and compassion for all and to bring about a world where all people and whole of creation live in harmony and where no one is in want.

We are a community of dedicated women with great passion for healing, wholeness, justice and life. We enter into the lives of the poor and marginalized as peers, as partners and as friends and work together to build one world, where the gifts of all people, all cultures and all creation are affirmed and celebrated.

Our life in mission is lived with people in 18 nations and many nationalities across five continents.

Community


“Community for us is a quality of relationship which we experience as we enter the lives of others and grow in our capacity to love, where we weave a web of support and affirmation as we share our deepest values and as we touch the goodness of one another, evoking and sustaining life.”

Commitment to one another is the core of community where God’s presence is alive, giving strength and support to continue in mission.

Our desire to be one, leads us to a life of relationship to others in equality of personhood. We commit ourselves to witness to the communion and interrelatedness of all. Living interconnected and interdependent is based on the belief that we are all beloved children of God and are connected at a deeper level. Living in community is a blessing and a witness to the possibility of global solidarity.
