Our journey into life is our journey into God. On this sacred journey we experience God as mystery, who is love,
source of healing and wholeness, and the sustainer of our life.
This journey into life is a journey with others. We are companioned by each other and by those around us. We experience being enriched by each other through mutual giving and receiving. Our search for God calls us to be present to the present, to live in the moment in all circumstances of life knowing that beneath the surface of everything God is present.
A community, Present to Life in the Spirit of Jesus the Healer… From the very beginning,
it was all about life. And it continues to be today.
For almost 100 years now, the Medical Mission Sisters have been focused on helping women and children around the world to live healthy, whole lives… to have all opportunities to grow and develop that deserve as human being. Justice demands this, “Justice is integral to healing,” the Community believes. And it is in this spirit that the mission of the Medical Mission Sisters has evolved over the years
Anna Dengel often told her sisters: “We must adapt ourselves to the needs: the needs will not adapt themselves to us. We must never be afraid to change if it is needed”. In our quest for wholeness, we explore new areas of concern related to life, to suffering, to health and to death; we pursue justice in solidarity with those made poor, with the powerless, with those who are oppressed. With them we struggle to transform unjust systems and structures.
