In 1905, the first sisters sent from Olinda founded
in the Southern part of Brasil St. Scholastica Priory
in Sorocaba, São Paulo.
Today the priory has over 70 sisters and 10 houses.
The sisters work in five elementary schools and four high schools.
Furthermore, they run a kindergarten, a hospital, work in various parishes
and take care of street children as well as many persons in the slums.
Our two houses in Argentina belong to the Sorocaba priory.
