Our Ministry


Created by priyanka from the Noun Project

Founded in 1933 by the Missionaries of Africa in Tanzania, the Daughters of Mary is a Diocesan Religious Congregation for Women. The charism of the Congregation is love and service. The Mother General and the Mother House is situated in the Archdiocese of Tabora, Tanzania-East Africa.


All the community members respond to this charism by engaging in different activities such as health care, education, pastoral ministry, social work, and children, women and youth development. Most of our ministries are directed to rural areas where we serve the poor and needy. These ministries are offered in 8 Dioceses in Tanzania.
