Daegu Priory in South Korea, founded in 1951 by the sisters who fled from North Korea, is the largest priory of the Congregation today with 326 sisters and 33 houses. Out of the terror, suffering and death of the persecution, abundant new life flourishes here.
The number of sisters grew so large that they decided to divide and found a new priory in Seoul in 1987. The sisters engage in manifold areas: they run the enormous 800-bed Fatima Hospital in Daegu, another 500-bed hospital, several rehabilitation centers for the handicapped, a high school with 463 students, Bible schools for adults, and a retreat center.
They devote themselves to military chaplaincy and extensive ministries in 25 parishes. In addition, the sisters work in a home for needy TB patients and run a soup kitchen for the poor. In the monastery they make vestments.
Several sister artists decorated the beautiful chapel with sculptures, made statues in the park, and created other objects.
