Celebrating 25 Years at the UN!

Celebrating 25 Years at the UN!

Medical Mission Sisters and Associates all over the world celebrated 25 years of official NGO status with the United Nations on October 24. In North America, we honored the occasion with High Tea during which a panel of speakers reflected on the rich history of our Society’s participation with the UN and how it has evolved since 1994. Later we enjoyed a festive meal with international dishes, with some MMS wearing clothing from their native countries or from countries in which they were in mission.
