Our mission. ”Each community in its own locality takes part in the mission of the congregation in the Church. It discerns its own way of incarnating the charism according to our choices for mission." As Daughters of the Church, we strive to seek unity in diversity through the link of peace.
We live together to serve - the sick in Bondigui public dispensary, - the women regrouped into an association called “women standing”, - the pupils at the Parish primary school whose management we see to and the children at the Christian Brothers college. “We pay special attention to the Underprivileged wherever we are sent, especially in the education, health and social sectors.”(RL 3).We try to recognize in them the Person of Jesus Christ. We participate in God’s Mission of love together with all those, women and men, who seek to restore in the world relationships characterized by justice and fraternal love. Concretely, it means that we collaborate with the other teachers and the parents in such a way that the dignity of all the pupils be recognized. Concerning the Dispensary, given that the Government offers us, free of charge, the means we need to tend to the children under 5 years of age, we try to sensitize the parents to take part in their education.
Belonging to St John the Evangelist parish at Phariyago, we do our most to carry and share our charism with all the parishioners and particularly with the lay members of the Parish Council and the choir members; we share our faith with the Catechumens; we also have to see to the sacristy. phariyago.pdf

The community has just purchased a plot of land on (...)
