Where are we ?

Our congregation is international. We are on 4 continents: Europe, Asia, Africa and America.


We live our missions in 11 countries: Algeria, Angola, Brazil, Canada, France, Italy, Madagascar, Myanmar (Burma), Philippines, Poland, USA.

Whatever the country, our vocation is to be women of Reconciliation before  God  and before  humanity.


In Algeria, our community of 4 Sisters of Madagascar is south of the Sahara, in El Menia (formerly El Goléa), and our Sisters work in the promotion of women with deaf and mute women to help them live in dignity. There is support in French and the rehabilitation of children with disabilities. In a Muslim society where women and children are little considered, they work to uplift, lead to more life… they also guide pilgrims to the tomb of Brother Charles, of which they are in charge.

In 1997, in Angola, a community of the Messenger Sisters of Our Lady of La Salette was recognized by the Bishop of Benguela. They merged with the Sisters of La Salette in 2004. The sisters participated in the family pastoral . They animate celebrations, provide catechesis, work in hospitals and accompany and visit the sick. They work in the parishes and neighborhoods according to the requests of the bishops and the calls of the parishes.



In Brazil, we have two communities: a "more in the South" and a "more in the North".

In the South, our Sisters of Brazilian origin, now a bit old, are involved in the pastoral care of children, health, visits to people who are alone...

In the North, we have created a center "Luz de la Salette" (the Light of La Salette) which is a school for street children. The school system in Brazil means that children go to school either in the morning or in the afternoon. The other half-day, they are in the street: easy prey for drug trafficking or prostitution. Our center wants to allow them to be removed from this danger…


A community of 4 Sisters lives in English Canada in Vancouver. This community is mainly at the service of Filipino migrants but also in catechesis, visiting the sick, in retirement homes...

To better update the message of Mary during her appearance in La Salette, the sisters are dedicated to passing on this message which said “go my children, make it well passed on to all my people”. This is why they are at the service of the restoration of Eucharistic adoration, prayer of the rosary in the churches. They participate in the liturgy, catechesis.
