Sister Rose Bernadette Gallagher and so many other older Maryknoll Sisters have made it their life’s work to bring about positive change in our world. We are so blessed to count them among our community, and we marvel at their enthusiasm for embracing new ways of ministering to God’s people.
Sister Rose Bernadette has spent decades working on behalf of women and children whose futures are not their own, giving them the tools, support and protection they need to reclaim and rebuild their lives.
“Their dignity as women was so violated; that started my passion for working with women.”
Because of Sister Rose Bernadette’s passion, countless women and children will be spared lives of exploitation and violence. Because of her determination, the rest of the world is now more aware of the sad reality of human trafficking and sexual slavery.
Today, Sister Rose Bernadette and these older Sisters remain a vital part of our mission. Through a ministry of prayer, they focus their time and energy on specific countries where our Sisters are striving to make God’s love visible on a daily basis. Your gifts allow us to support and care for these ordinary women who have done – and continue to do – extraordinary things.
To learn more how you can be part of our vision for the future, please download our summer letter about our ill and elderly Sisters. Today we need your help in providing comfort and care to our older Sisters. Your gift will support these Sisters with medicine, wheelchairs, walkers, health aides, and nurses as our missioners look forward to their second century of service.
