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)
