Medical Missionaries, POSC
A branch of the Little Workers of the Sacred Hearts,
a Catholic medical order that provides free health care to the poor.

Mission Goal

We are founding the Medical Missionaries, POSC initially under the prayerful guidance of James Cardinal Hickey and Bishop Lori of Washington DC, and now we are an official branch of the Sisters, Little Workers of the Sacred Hearts.

We are doctors and nurses who are using our medical talents in a pro-life, anti-sterilization and anti-contraceptive/abortive fashion. We are called to become medical defenders of life from the moment of conception to natural death. Jesus teaches us to do this in His gospel; and this is how we, as Medical Missionaries, will follow Jesus from this moment on.

We ask you to join us in this service to Jesus as He comes to us in the humble disguise of the poor. “As you did it to t he least, you did it to Me…” Matt 25:40.

The Medical Missionaries will be a religious congregation, a community of contemplative-active medical sisters and co-workers whose labor will continually be nourished by prayerful lives, centered on the Eucharist, for the Honor and Glory of God and for the salvation of our souls and all souls.

Our loving, free medical services will be offered to all of the poorest of the poor and to religious and priests.

We will also be offering continuing medical and nursing education to missionaries around the world.

Our work, to serve Jesus in the Humble disguise of the poor will only be possible if we nourish our religious prayer lives by

i. living the Sacraments of Baptism, daily Eucharist, weekly Reconciliation, Confirmation (john 6: 56-58) (John 20: 22-23)

ii Praying the Liturgy of the Hours daily with joy and graditude (Luke 18:1)
