The Evangelizing Sisters of Mary is a growing Community. As an African Religious Missionary Congregation, though it has many vocations, the biggest challenge in the Congregation is that; some tribes/cultures, a girl is given out for marriage in terms of dowry. Therefore, some parents are still struggling to allow their daughters to join Religious life. Though it is an outdated practice, we still face it though we still give education to the parents, many of them are still rooted to the past practices.
Two Comboni Missionaries founded our Congregation in 1975. They are: Rt. Rev. Bishop Sixto Mazzoldi and Very Rev. Fr. John Marengoni; both of happy memories, in Moroto Catholic Diocese in the Northern Part of Uganda.
The Name of the Congregation was given on 8th December 1975. The first Centre of the Institute was in Morulem - Moroto Diocese. Its first members were 14 girls from Tanzania and 6 from Uganda.
