The Holy Rosary Sisters welcome you

Who are we?  

Catholic women, Missionaries, and Religious Sisters.

Founded in 1924 in Killeshandra, CO. Cavan, Ireland by Bishop Joseph Shanahan to bring the gospel to the women of Southern Nigeria, we now number over 300 sisters on mission in Africa, South America, Ireland/United Kingdom, and the US.  Visit us in any one of our thirteen Regions.  Learn more by going to About Us where you will also find our Contact Addresses.

In the joy of the Resurrection Jesus says:

“Go out to the whole world!
Go out to my people
Everywhere!
Draw them into God’s life.
In the name of the Father,
the Son the Holy Spirit.
Bring them into the heart of God’s family.
I am with you.
Yes, always, to the end of the world!”
And we say:
“Here I am Lord, is it I, Lord?
I have heard you calling in the night.
I will go, Lord, if you send me,
I will hold your people in my heart.”

(Isaiah 6:8; Hymn Daniel Schulte)

“Jesus has kept his promises. Trust him with unlimited trust and let there be no love like unto yours for him.  Christ will ever keep you near to his heart, his arm in yours! “Don’t fear.  Whatever befalls you, He is ever with you.” Bishop Shanahan

Prayer and Praise

We give thanks

“… For all the glorious visions God has given his missionaries – visions of His own self in the hearts of his children.  Oh how good God is!  If only all the world could see Him and love Him!”
