Medical Mission Sisters celebrate the 88th anniversary of our founding on September 30. In 1925, Doctor Anna Dengel joined Mary Evelyn Flieger, R.N., Joanna Lyons, M.D., and Marie Ulbrich, R.N., in Washington, D.C., and our Community began. In the last 88 years, our Sisters have shared their many gifts of healing and have made a difference in the lives of millions of individuals. Today we live our mission of healing presence in 17 nations around the world. In addition to our 600 Canonical members, we have close to 100 Associate members. Anna Dengel’s vision of professional, compassionate care of persons in need continues to live on in each member of our Community in countless settings worldwide.
