St Mary's Province is a witness to the healing touch and presence of God's love within our communities. We have healing ministry and bring Christ's love and hope to all those who seek our help. As part of promoting health awareness, health care and improving the general hygiene of the community, our province runs hospitals. Sister Felix is the Director of Health services.
