WHO ARE BANYATEREZA SISTERS
We are consecrated religious women called to serve and love God freely and inclusively; to possess nothing so as to share everything; to listen so as to discern God’s will.
We are an institute of Diocesan Right, founded in Fort Portal Diocese, Uganda, East Africa, by the Right Reverend Francis Xavier Lacoursière. We live in Community whereby we share together our giftedness and our common goal. Our principal patroness is Saint Therese of the Child Jesus, patroness of missionaries. We cultivate a special devotion to her and imitate her faith, love, trust, humility and spirit of self-sacrifice. Currently we are serving in Rwanda, Kenya, Uganda and Sudan.
Spiritual Childhood — (By the life of St. Therese of the Child Jesus, Spiritual Childhood is
marked by Love, faith, trust, simplicity and confidence in the Good Lord).
Love God and Make Him loved. A motto we adopted from St. Therese.
We are an Active Religious institute
Love, Trust, Humility, Simplicity, self- sacrifice and hospitality,
