We are an international congregation of sisters, spread over four continents. Our sisters are in 13 provinces committing themselves in multi-ministry apostolic activities. Our head office is in Rome , Italy at Via Nomatano


Our Ignatian spirituality invites us to be apostolic women in the Church – contemplatives in action.
