Migrants Project in Sicily
Migrant Project in Sicily on its way (2015 – 2018)
The project is approaching the end of the first three years of service in Sicily. It is a result of the efforts of 17 Sisters coming different countries and institutes.
It was inspired by the desire to create universal communion among the religious women at UISG and to respond to new forms of poverty and marginalisation. It is in response to the invitation by Pope Frances to “go out and meet others” so as to promote a new way of living the mission by putting together the efforts and resources through the enrichment of different charismas. It began with two small communities based in Agrigento and Ramacca, followed by a third community that was established in Caltanissetta in 2016.
