Most Rev. Rafael Palazzi, O.F.M., Bishop of Hengyang, Hunan, started this community in 1939 in China. The sisters are committed to evangelization among people in places where the Gospel has not been fully accepted, and they draw encouragement and strength from Mary, the co-redemptrix of the human race.

They have missions in Hong Kong, Taiwan, New Mexico, California, Oregon, and Canada. Apostolic works include catechetics, pastoral ministry, retreat ministry, education, care of the sick, and the underprivileged.

Entrance requirements are: a high school diploma or GED, good physical and mental health, and a desire to consecrate oneself to God and His service. Age limit is 45.
