Congregational mission in Romania.
Two Sisters came to help with “Street Children” in September 1990 and worked in Bucharest.
In 1994 some Sisters initiated an educational mission in Campulung, during 2000 in Onesti and during 2002 in Tomesti. The Catholic population is small in predominantly Orthodox areas so the presence of the Sisters much appreciated.
From the beginning the Sisters have been very involved in the life of the parishes, supporting the priests, the poor and the marginalised. They continue to provide hot meals for the elderly, to organise weekly ecumenical gathering, to work with disabled young adults, homeless people and the marginalised.
The Sisters’ charism is very much to the forefront of their minds as they encourage pupils from different types of backgrounds to be part of the school families: Campulung – Scoala Sfantul Iacob - http://www.scoalasfantuliacob.ro: Onesti – Gradinita Sf Petru si Paul – www.gradinitasfpaulonesti.ro. and Tomesti - Gradinita Fericitul Erimia. The “Vladimir Ghika” Day Centre aims to provide a secure, stimulating and creative learning environment for children with special needs where they can feel welcome and safe and at the same time offer support for their families.
