90 Years of Foundation


The celebrations for the 90th anniversary of the presence of the Paulines in Brazil have begun: 90 years of mission. Hundreds of young girls have consecrated their lives to proclaim the Word of God, have opened their hearts to welcome and announce the message of the Gospel through the media, in the most distant places of the country.

The Provincial Superior, Sr Ana Marlene Konzen, introduced the celebration of 90 years of evangelisation with these words: “The Daughters of St Paul arrived in Brazil in 1931. The first Pauline missionary from Italy was Sr Dolores Baldi who, despite all the difficulties, planted the Pauline seed in this land. Today we are present in all the regions of Brazil with our communities and also with our book centres. To commemorate this very special date, we have adopted the slogan:
Paulinas, 90 years of journeying in Brazil – Vocation, Word and Mission.

To all the sisters of this beautiful country our best wishes! May the Lord always bless your journey.
