On 12 March 2006, three Sisters went to Addo, South Africa, to open a new mission among the people of the Sundays River Valley at the request of Bishop Michael Coleman, Port Elizabeth Diocese.There has been no resident priest for 30 years and the people are delighted that the Sisters live in the local community. The Sisters support the people who face the consequences of HIV/Aids, seasonal workers who live with a high level of unemployment, children and parents in the local areas.
