of Life and Mission of Our Congregation

“The Comboni Missionary Sisters are women consecrated to God for the mission “ad gentes.”

We came into being in 1872 and, because of the prophetic inspiration of Daniel Comboni, we were founded as an exclusively missionary institute. Comboni was a missionary who was passionate about Christ and about Africa and who always and everywhere gave priority to the most vulnerable people.

The vision of his is alive in us today wherever we are: in the African continent where we have our ministerial roots as well in Europe where we were founded, the America and Asia where, in response to the signs of the times, we are also present.
