“Go into the Whole World”

Even today, the Church through its missionaries "ad gentes", answers the call of Christ to proclaim His Word of Salvation to all. This is the reason that the Sisters of the Sorrowful Mother, in 2006, responded to the request of the Bishop of the Diocese of Kahama, Tanzania and are present in the Parish of Ifunde that has 22 villages and 28,000 people in an area of 30 Km.

Our local community is currently comprised of five Sisters, three Italians and two Africans, and three postulances. Through a continuous process of learning the local language and culture and by sharing in the everyday life of the people, we reflected upon how to address the problems connected with healthcare, education and evangelization in ways that are consistent with our congregational ministries.
