South Korea

The Seoul Priory was founded in 1987. 126 sisters work in 15 communities and engage in many kinds of ministries. One of the houses is located among Korean immigrants in New Jersey, United States.

In addition to pastoral work in 9 parishes, the sisters run 6 kindergartens, a school for deaf children (K-12), a center for deaf mutes with a kindergarten for handicapped children, and two nursing homes (one of which is for deaf mutes).

In two centers the sisters live together with children who are orphaned or can’t live with their parents.

They are also responsible for two soup kitchens for the elderly and unemployed. Most of these ministries receive financial support from the state.

Two artistically gifted sisters contribute to the priory’s livelihood by their work in their studios for sacred art and architecture.
