In Nepal, sisters are engaged in teaching running boarding houses and caring the HIV/AIDS patients. Our mission activities started in 1993, when in collaborationnepal1 with the CST Fathers, the sisters  joined to work in their school. In 1996 our sisters volunteered to serve the Nepalee victims who were affected by AIDS or STD by helping them to come out of their inhuman existence being disowned by the family, rejected by the society and despised by everybody.

Our Convents in Nepal are:

Narayangarh: In response to the invitation of the Provincial superior of CST Congregation Rev. Fr. Joseph Chathanatt we have taken the first step to enter in Nepal for nepal2mission and evangelization. In collaboration with the CST Fathers we joined to work in their school in 1993 to propagate the Eucharistic devotion through education.

Nakkhu – Kathmandu: Our sisters in 1996 volunteered to serve the Nepalee victims who were affected by AIDS/STD at Nakkhu. The sisters help them to come out of their inhuman existence, being disowned by family, rejected by the society and despised by everybody.nepal3
