Contemplation, Communion & Mission

Welcome to the website of the Sisters of Our Lady of the Missions of Aotearoa – New Zealand and Samoa.

The Sisters of Our Lady of the Missions (RNDM) Aotearoa-New Zealand and Samoa form part of an international community of Catholic Sisters who carry on missionary work in twenty countries around the world. In each country, the Sisters respond to the needs of the people with a primary focus on education and women’s empowerment.


Euphrasie Barbier received a particular gift to understand that the Trinity is the source of all missionary activity. Her profound experience of God led her, under the impulse of the Spirit, to found in the Church a religious missionary congregation whose members would live the grace of consecration for the Divine Missions through contemplation, communion and mission.
