WELCOME TO  IBVM EASTERN AFRICA PROVINCE

The Institute of the Blessed Virgin Mary, whose members are commonly known as the Loreto Sisters, is a Roman Catholic religious congregation of women. Who are drawn to companionship in the service of the gospel. Inspired by the Mary Ward’s Charism and the Ignatian Spirituality.

We strive to support the growth in faith and freedom of each person through Spiritual Ministries, Education, Social Ministries, Capacity Development and other works of mercy which meet the needs of our times. We are an active community of women seeking to spread the Gospel as ‘Contemplatives in Action’. Mary Ward (1585 – 1645) founder, an English woman who held a strong conviction “that women in time to come will do much,” continues to inspire and challenge women today.  Their presence is felt all over the world as shown at the map below.
