More about our founders

The four founding Sisters of the Congregation made their first vows on December 8, 1941. These were Sr. Mary Njeri, Sr. Theresa Nyambura, Sr. Joseph Nyambura and Sr. Martha Tatu. 

The four endured a long wait to consecrate themselves to God. They were determined to become Sisters just "like the European Sisters" of the Precious Blood Congregation that saw to it that the young African girls got a strong foundation in Christianity and religious life
