Anna Dengel Day

scan0005Medical Mission Sisters celebrate April 17 as Anna Dengel Day. This year April 17 marks the 35th anniversary of our Founder’s death. But we remember, reflect on and thank God for her 88 years of life. Anna Dengel’s faith and vision helped change the Church’s Canon Law that once banned Sisters from being medical doctors, surgeons and obstetricians. Because of her own and our other members’ dedication over the past 90 years, Medical Mission Sisters from around the world have cared for millions of persons who needed health care and/or longed for healing in their lives.

Our new “Anna Dengel” booklet, pictured above, is available free of charge by writing: It just won an Award of Excellence from the Religion Communicators Council.
