Germany (Saarland)


The Nazareth Sisters began their nursing care and services in Germany on 1st Nov. 1998. It is the goodwill, interest, and generous help of Rev. Fr. Joseph Karinattu, former Vicar General of the Archdiocese of Tellicherry, who knows our Congregation from close quarters. The congregation sent the pioneer sisters Sr. Little Rose, Sr. Retty, Sr. LintaMaria and Sr. Seenia . Rev. Sr. Maria Basina Kloos, Franciscan Sisters, in Germany and Sr. Savio MSMI helped these sisters to start their service in an entirely different place. After four years of living in Germany, in 2002, the SVD (Society of the Divine Word) fathers helped them to get a convent at St. Wendel. With the assistance and support of these SVD fathers and Rev. Sr. Maria Basina Kloos, our sisters learnt the German language and started their nursing service. Presently, we have three houses in Germany. The other two are at Wiebelskirchen and Puttlingen. All these houses are located in the Trier Diocese. The sisters also find time to participate in the parish ministries
