Foundation in Democratic Republic of the Congo in 1955

The Ursuline Mission started in DRC in 1955 thanks to the devoted response of five pioneers namely: Sr. Catherine Vande Mierop, Sr. Tereza Schets, Sr. Lucie De Doncker, Sr. Amanda Peeters and Sr. Michaelle Van Hacht.
They responded to the voice of God calling them to leave Belgium to provide schools that were needed to uplift the girls through education in the RDC.
