Our U.S. Province is one of seven provinces of the Irish congregation. Today we are 120 sisters, from 18 former independent congregations in Ireland, living and ministering from coast to coast in 12 states of the U.S.
Our Leadership Team lives at 1075 Bermuda Drive, Redlands, California 92374.
Although widely spread throughout the United States, we are able to meet for Chapters and Assemblies where we claim our identity as part of an international, multicultural congregation. Recognizing our call, we commit ourselves to on-going conversion in our interactions, our prayer, our welcoming and encouraging "the diversity of persons and gifts among us." (Constitution 10.4)
Provincial Leadership Team: Srs. Rosaline O'Connor (Provincial Leader), Kathleen Hanley,
