Coroatá, MA


In answer to Dom Reinaldo Punder, the bishop of the Coroatá diocese, who wanted the presence of Sisters of Saint Joseph in Coroata so they could co-ordinate the catechism program and welcome the people attending diocesan meetings, some members of the Congregation accepted to take up residence in this city. They moved into the humble house of the Sisters of Namur who had moved to the country. The newly-arrived sisters organized their house and soon became active in pastoral work with the parishioners.
