Our Sisters in Japan

The Franciscan Sisters of the Atonement arrived in Japan in 1957 and resided in Kawasaki.  A new convent, which included a novitiate, was built in Yokohama in 1962.  The Sisters in Japan have been involved in kindergarten education, pastoral ministry and other missionary work.  Our Sisters now live and minister in Minami-Rinkan, where they are engaged in parish ministry and teaching English.
