The Congregation of our Lady of the Missions is divided into Provinces of which The UK and Ireland form one. We have communities in Scotland, Ireland and England. In the early years of our Province, we sent Sisters to the various continents and it is a great tribute to them that we have so many national Sisters who are now responsible for the administration of their own provinces. We no longer can fulfil that role and so we welcome our Sisters from the various continents to come and stay with us, while furthering their education. This has the great advantage of their sharing something of their life and culture with us while continuing their education. So, this becomes a two-way process as the young Sisters also share the wisdom and life experience of our older Sisters.
Our Sisters are involved in pastoral ministry, many of them in their local parish communities, participating in ongoing faith development.
We are very aware of our missionary outreach through visiting schools, raising mission awareness and encouraging partnerships with school that cater for the most disadvantaged in our world. Our mission desk is very active in this area and actively promotes communication between schools.
We see the “disadvantaged” in this country as part of our mission – our daily contact with people, ministering to the homeless, the sick, the housebound and the elderly.
According to our Foundress, Euphrasie Barbier,”mission is essentially the witness of a soul that lives by God” so we are not limited to geographical boundaries. Our daily community prayer reaches out to the whole of humanity and God’s creation, interceding for peace, justice and reconciliation.
