Mission in United States
The Lord has done great things for us!

     Because the charity of Christ is attentive to the needs of others, the Daughters of Our Lady of the Garden answered once again the call to serve. On March 16, 1961, Most Reverend Vincent Hines, Bishop of Norwich, Connecticut, gave permission to the Daughters of Our Lady of the Garden to establish a foundation in his Diocese.

     The year after, on November 20, 1962, five Sisters took charge of the domestic services at Marianapolis Preparatory School in Thompson, CT. Four years later, in 1966 four more Sisters joined them. In addition to their work at Marianapolis, the Sisters studied at Annhurst College in Woodstock, CT and later at Southern Connecticut State University in New Haven, CT. The Sisters’ goal is to get their Bachelors and Masters degrees in Education. The mission in Thompson, however, closed in 1985 after a profound reflection on the urgent needs of the Church today and for lack of personnel that would satisfy the school’s needs.

     Presently, the Sisters serve the people of God in Middletown, Connecticut; Johnston, Rhode Island; and Staten Island, New York.
