Sisters of the Poor

of Saint Catherine of Siena


Community “Savina Orden”​

The Sisters of the poor were called by the diocese of Osnabrück in 2011 to provide nursing service in the nursing home “Maria Anna Hospital” in Lengerich, a locality near Gersten: the Community “Savina Orden” – opened on August 25, 2011 in Gersten. The project started from three sisters called by the Mother Savina Province of India, who later were also involved in the pastoral activities of the Parish. The Sisters then took the qualification to serve in hospital. Later they were sent by the Diocese of Mainz to work in the hospital. The sisters arrived at the new home in Zornheim, Mainz on April 18, 2021; currently, there are five Sisters sent in this mission and they are working in two hospitals. On April 29, 2022, the community celebrated 11 years of service at the “Maria Anna hospital”. We thank the Sisters who carry out this mission with such dedication for the good of our brothers and sisters in need.
