Campulung  Campulung  

In 1994 some Sisters came to live in Campulung having been involved in a Summer School for a few years previously. In May of that year the first candidates from Romania joined the Congregation so it was necessary to establish a Novitiate at Str C. Brancoveanu No.32 and in 1997 they made first profession followed by final profession in 2003. The Congregation celebrated its 25th anniversary in Romania in October 2015 
From the beginning the Sisters have been very involved in the life of the parish and supporting the priests, the poor and the marginalised. They continue to provide hot meals for the elderly three days a week and organise a weekly ecumenical gathering. 
In 1996 the Congregation helped to establish a school: Scoala Sfantul Iacob with two departments, Preschool and Primary and in 2000 the Secondary department was initiated. The Sisters are still involved in it as they encourage the development of a Christian education. This school received Accreditation status in May 2008. 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 this school family. In 2016 the school received its first financial support from the Romanian government. 
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. All families in the area are included in the project. The activities at the centre started in November 2016 with 10 children and this number has gradually increased over the year and on 18th November 2017 there were 30 children on roll as the official opening ceremony was performed by Archbishop Robu Ioan of Bucharest in the presence of the Congregational leader, the first assistant and the Sisters living in Romania.
