Coming Summer 2024

IRMAS: The Story of the Sisters of Mary is a documentary following the Sisters of Mary’s
journey as they work tirelessly to end poverty through education.


The Story of the Sisters of Mary

Take a glimpse into the Sisters of Mary programs and meet the children and their families whose lives are forever changed for the better by the opportunity to receive a free, quality education and care.

From the dust covered villages in rural Tanzania to the lush and remote regions of Brazil, the Sisters of Mary travel to find children living in the deepest poverty. And they offer them the chance at a free, life-changing education.
