The Eastern Province is known as a Missionary Province because majority of the sisters work in the tribal belt of North East India. 14 out of 25 convents are situated in the midst of the poor, tribal people. The difficult terrain, inaccessible villages, inclement weather conditions, lack of transport, social and economic constraints make life in these areas very challenging. The people are open to receive the message of the Gospel but the labourers are few. We experience the strain of limited personnel to cope with the work of educational institutions and welfare centres.

Opting for new challenging ministries has been the characteristic of Eastern Province. In collarboration with the NGOs we work for the welfare of women prisoners through family counselling, education of their children (girls) in the prison and vocational therapy. Our sisters are engaged in youth ministry and family apostolate too.
