International Group of Sisters

International Brochure

Since the congregation’s beginning (1851-1870) the Poor Handmaids have been present in several countries of Europe (Germany, the Netherlands and England) and in the United States. Impelled by the changes of the Church after the second Vatican Council (1962-65), we have deepened the great richness of being an international missionary congregation, opening missions in India, Mexico, Brazil, Kenya, and Nigeria.
