Our Founders


It is through God’s Grace and our compassionate response,
urged by the Holy Spirit through Works of Mercy,
that we serve each other and thereby serve
Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Our friends and supporters truly give from their heart and it’s not about how much they give, but why they give: They love God and share God’s merciful love, to make burdens lighter for hurting children who are so vulnerable.

Humble Beginnings Rooted in Hope, Faith, & Charity

The Adorer Missionary Sisters of the Poor is an emerging, vibrant religious community of women in Tanzania. Deeply in love with Jesus we seek to grow more intimately with Our Lord Jesus and Master. We behold the majesty of the Blessed Trinity and in thanksgiving spend quality time every day in adoration of the Most Blessed Sacrament.

​We are also happy to say that in the United States of America, with the approval of His Excellency, Most Rev. Gerald Barbarito, Bishop of Palm Beach Catholic Diocese, the Adorer Missionary Sisters of the Poor have been incorporated in the State of Florida as a religious charitable organization and has been granted a 501(c)(3) tax exempt status by the IRS.

Our Mission to know, adore, and serve our Lord

The Mission of Adorer Missionary Sisters of the Poor is to adore Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament, to promote Eucharistic Adoration and to evangelize both in domestic and foreign missions, in the spirit of Jesus who came to bring the good news to the poor, set captives free and proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor. We do this by devotedly growing in intimacy with the Lord and embracing the Cross, living the Gospel, engaging in the ministries of the Church especially education at all levels, health and social services, catechizing and making a deliberate option to serve the poorest of the poor, the orphans and the marginalized.

Our Vision To radiate God's Love to All - especially the Marginalized

Our vision is to increase people’s capacity and ability to embrace gospel values like: justice, credibility and love and to apply them in every day situations so that they become a reflection of God on earth. We envision ourselves with the mission to bring every human person on earth to a personal encounter with Jesus the Lord.

Through our ministries of prayer, Eucharistic adoration and promoting the same: evangelization, teaching, healing and social services, we bring the message of Good News to people. We envision our ministries as facilitating people’s encounter with Jesus so they can begin to tell their new story of the love of God!

A moment of an encounter with Jesus is a moment of invitation to be who we are created to be: a child of God. It is a moment of conversion as it was for Zacchaeus, Matthew, Mary Magdalene and others. This is our hope for ourselves and those we lead to encounter Christ!

We also envision ourselves to be humble servants of hope for the poor and make a deliberate option for them.
