The Legacy of Anna Dengel- Pioneering Spirit, Healing Presence

Esharelife Think Tank in collaboration with the Medical Mission Sisters, with the patronage of the Republic of San Marino Consulate, cordially invite you to attend an online webinar: The Legacy of Anna Dengel- Pioneering Spirit, Healing Presence with special guest Sister Miriam Therese Winter PhD , Professor Emerita- Hartford Seminary.

We are delighted to organise this online event on Tuesday 25th May at 17:00 UK time.

Sister Miriam Therese Winter will be delighted to join the event from Hartford, Connecticut, USA . She will talk about Medical Mission Sisters (MMS) Austrian founder, Mother Anna Dengel, from the Austrian Tyrol, who first worked as a doctor in the 1920s in Rawalpindi – then India, now Pakistan – where custom and religious beliefs prevented women from being seen by men outside the immediate family and medical treatment could not be accepted from male doctors. Female physicians were rare in those days and there was a prohibition in Church law, unaltered since 1263, barring members of religious institutions from practicing medicine.

Mother Dengel was driven by a pioneering spirit to develop a healing mission, and that mission continues in the present day, adapted by the same pioneering spirit of the members of her community to respond to the needs of our time.

There will also be a chance for you to ask her your questions.
