We were born many years ago, in 1826, in an old city of central Catalonia, Vic (Spain). St. Joaquina de Vedruna is the foundress of this Congregation. It quickly spread throughout Catalonia, the daughters of St. Joaquina started the communities in many places of Spain and, in a few years, they spread their service to many different countries, in tune with the conviction of the Foundress who Said: "My daughters must go to many places and they cannot refuse. “Therefore, it is, to this day.
