German Province

since 1896

We live in large and small communities with and among the people. We believe, like Mother Bernarda, that death and suffering are not the end but that faith in the crucified and risen Lord gives life in fullness.

It is important for us to accompany young people and young adults in their search for their own vocation.  To support this purpose in a special way, the German Province made the house in Neuötting available for vocation promotion. Young women are invited to join the community life of the sisters. In a spiritual atmosphere, through talks and silence they can become more aware of their direction in life.

Focal Points

  • Education of the youth (kindergarten and schools)

Touched by the needs of the people, like our Founders.
Dedicated to the people while rooted in God.
Available for the people, since called by Christ.
At the side of the weak and little ones, since HE walked ahead of us.
