by Gail DeGeorge and Sr. Joyce Meyer

 

The combined hard work of a beloved priest and the Servite Sisters in Kyauktan, Myanmar, keep operations running at St. Mary’s Home, a successful, multifaceted farm that also supports and shelters 120 girls.

The Servite Sisters arrived in Myanmar from India in 1924 and established a community in Kyauktan, which like the rest of the country, was mostly Buddhist and Hindu with a small Catholic population.
