Medical Mission Sisters are women full of 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. It moves us to the core of our being when and where people are made poor, are oppressed or are overwhelmed with a sense of powerlessness.
To heal and make whole is a way of being in the world. It is our way of being in the world. At every turn, with ourselves and among our associates, at work and at worship, at prayer and at play, privately and publicly, every day and in every way, our call is to heal and be healed.
