Our 90th Anniversary

downloadMedical Mission Sisters in 18 nations celebrate our 90th birthday on September 30. As our Founder, Anna Dengel, was “all fire and flame” when she realized she could do something to help women who were denied access to health care in North India in the early 1900s, today–in innumerable ways–we continue to be “fire and flame” for healing and wholeness. Our 550 Canonical members and 100 Associate members feel privileged to keep the fire burning, as we work for justice, wholeness and peace in a world in which too many persons still experience brokenness, suffering and pain.
