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
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)

Crossing the Divide

Let’s build bridges this Advent! How far do I need to reach?  Maybe just next door, or even nearer! But it’s risky. Am I able to do it? Do I need help? Is it worth it? Our God leapt down from heaven to be with us! Surely He will show us how!


Advent: Making space for Joy!

Preparation: making room for the simple joys and graces of God! The true gifts of the season: hope in our Father’s loving promises, the joy of meeting Love in the people around us. With Joy we work these Advent Days so that Jesus may find a place of welcome in our world.
