Consolata Missionary Sisters (M.C.) We
are members of an international missionary
institute of women religious founded by
Blessed Joseph Allamano in Turin, Italy, in
1910. The purpose of our congregation is to
fulfill Jesus’ mandate to go and proclaim the
Good News of Consolation to all nations.
We are committed to this goal by ministering in Africa, Asia, Europe, South, and North
America as catechists, nurses, teachers,
pastoral ministers, social workers, pastoral
administrators—in whatever way we can.
As Consolata Missionary Sisters we simply
want to be a presence—a presence of peace,
reconciliation, and love—a presence that
comforts and reassures, that hopes beyond
hope. With our lives nourished by the Word
of God and sustained by the Eucharist, we
strive to build communities that are poor
and prophetic, centered on the experience of
Christ, open to all people for the proclamation of the Gospel. Contact: Vocation Office,
