In 1946, Bishop Dominic Hồ Ngọc Cẩn founded our congregation for evangelization and catechesis in the Diocese of Bui Chu, North Vietnam. The first house in the United States was situated at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1967 where the sisters ministered and attended school. To assist the pastoral needs of the Vietnamese immigrants, the sisters completed the transition to the South in 1986. In October 2003, the 18th General Chapter restructured the congregation’s governance, establishing Queen of Peace Province in the United States with provincial headquarters in New Orleans, Louisiana.
With special devotion to the Blessed Mother as Our Lady of the Rosary, we strive to immerse our lives in the Joyful, Luminous, Sorrowful, and Glorious mysteries of salvation and proclaim the grace of redemption to all. We continue the mission of Jesus through various ministries: education, healthcare, parish ministry, and social work. Presently, our sisters serve in Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Vietnam.
We welcome young ladies between the ages of 17 and 30 to join in our call of living the mysteries of salvation and proclaiming the grace of redemption to all.
