 Mother Liliana Quesada Dorado 

Was born in Argentina on November 2, 1958. She is the fifth daughter of six siblings. As a young woman, she felt God’s call in her life, inviting her to serve him more closely. She studied at the Colegio Nuestra Señora del Huerto and graduated in Medicine. Shortly afterwards she joined the Savinian Family with a great desire to love and serve God, like Blessed Savina, in her most vulnerable brother. As soon as she reached perpetual profession she assumed the mission of superior in a community in Argentina and this was the beginning of an experience that led her to assume the responsibility of provincial.
Mother Liliana is an intelligent, humble, simple and profound woman. She has a youthful ardor and a sense of family that makes her close.


Her current guide service, despite the difficulties of the time, spurs us to welcome the novelty of the time:
● The commitment to generate a mentality of multimedia communication for an extension of the mission.
● Multimedia Communication Course for Young Sisters.
● The plant of the Savinian Communication Office.
● Commitment to a more solid, charismatic initial formation.
● Commitment to give new impetus to the economy of the Italian province.
