Our Leadership

Missionary Sisters of the Holy Rosary

THE JOY OF THE GOSPEL fills the hearts and lives of all who encounter Jesus.
A joy ever new, a joy which is shared.  (Pope Francis: The Joy of the Gospel , 2013)

Founded in 1924 by Bishop Joseph Shanahan, Servant of God, in Killeshandra, Co Cavan, Ireland, to bring the Gospel to the women of Southern Nigeria, Holy Rosary Sisters now share the joy of Mission in twelve countries in Africa, South America, North America and Europe, faithful to our original call to work for education and for the advancement of women. 

Many of the daughters and grand-daughters of those girls and young women who met the Sisters in the early years now share the joy of mission. As Holy Rosary Sisters they too go out to share the joy of the Gospel to our different Regions.
