Medical Mission Sisters in the UK
Healing Presence at the Heart of a Wounded World
90th Anniversary of Foundation
On September 30th 2015, Medical Mission Sisters celebrated the Community's 90th Anniversary of Foundation.
Touched by the suffering she witnessed while working as a doctor in Pakistan, Dr Anna Dengel felt called to establish a religious community of medically trained women who would dedicate their lives to the care of the sick, especially in third world countries.
Anna was joined by Dr Joanna Lyons and two nurses, Miss Mary Evelyn Flieger and Miss Agnes Marie Uulbrich and the Society of Catholic Medical Missionaries was born in Washington DC in 1925.
Today the Society has over 500 members of 24 nationalities, working in 15 countries.
