Come and celebrate 50 years since the sisters arrived in the Toowoomba Diocese. In May 1964, five sisters arrived at the invitation of Bishop Brennan. They came to serve the rural parishes by way of home visits and providing faith education for adults and children.
Their travels took them to distant places like Thargomindah, Birdsville and Windorah as well as many districts on the Darling Downs. They stayed with families or at local churches. At that time they were commonly known as the Rosary House Sisters. The Sisters have worked in the Toowoomba Diocese throughout these 50 years in a great variety of ways.
