Six Sisters Serving the Poor in bolivia

They travel to places where a priest can rarely visit. In the poorest, remotest and most inaccessible regions, the Missionary Sisters of Jesus Word and Victim minister to the people in their poverty and abandonment, bringing them hope. The congregation, founded in 1961 in Peru, is active today in seven countries of Latin America.

The Sisters pray with the people, tend to the sick and comfort the dying in their last moments, bring the people Holy Communion, baptize the children, conduct funerals and liturgies of the Word and give catechetical instruction.
