There are several LCM communities, in family-sized units, throughout Southern Africa. Sisters from these come together regularly for prayer, reflection and recreation. Their ministries include: nursing, parish work, theological study, chaplaincies to prison and college, school retreats, administration and nursing education. We are all focused on building up the people of God in our local areas, through friendship and being good neighbours.
