Attentive to the needs of the times, open to the will of God, and faithful to the spirituality of Venerable Maria Hueber, whose greatest desire was to do the will of God, the Tertiary Sisters of Saint Francis have been motivated to broaden the scope of their pastoral ministry by attending to the physical and spiritual needs of migrants, refugees and Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs). The sisters of the mother house in Brixen have created a space in their convent where they offer food to immigrants every day. In the Province of Cameroon, the ongoing socio-political crisis, which started four years ago, has necessitated the care of IDPs in Cameroon and refugees from Cameroon in Nigeria. The urgency of the refugee ministry has led to the opening of a TSSF convent in Taraba State to enable the sisters to attend to the needs of the refugees in Taraba and Benue States in Nigeria. The principal needs of the refugees, which the sisters and their collaborators attend to, include: the provision of shelter, food, medical, pastoral and spiritual care, and counseling services.
