Who are the Sisters of Mary?

Since 1960, the Sisters of Mary have been aiding children in poverty through Catholic education and care. Founded in South Korea by Venerable Aloysius Schwartz, they’ve expanded globally, offering free residential schooling to over 20,000 children. They focus on holistic development – academic, spiritual, vocational – and produce skilled musicians, artists, and athletes. The Sisters also provide sacramental grace and Catholic teachings, fostering a strong religious foundation.

The Sisters serve as nurturing figures, helping children from challenging backgrounds. They offer vocational training aligned with local needs, ensuring successful job placements post-graduation. Their efforts extend to community care with free medical and dental services, childcare, and vocational centers.

Their work has a lasting impact, with over 170,000 graduates contributing to their communities and breaking poverty cycles. Graduates, often becoming professionals like teachers and doctors, remain connected to the Sisters, demonstrating the program’s enduring influence on individuals and communities.
