Welcome to Our Blog!


Welcome to our Blog. Though the word is still strange to us, many of our friends, including Nicholas Kristof of the New York Times who visited in June 2006, suggested that we start one. So, this will be a way that we (Sr. Barbara Staley and Sr. Diane Dalle Molle) and our colleagues in Swaziland can share with friends, family, and supporters.

We’ll use this Blog to tell what days are like here, what’s going on with the children, programs and projects like the farm, and how the community is faring. We’ll also provide links to further reading about Swaziland and the issues we face here.

We’ll also have links to the Cabrini Mission Foundation — newsletters, pictures, and other updates — and lots of photos of the children and life around St. Philip’s Mission.

To get started, we’ve added posts to bring you all up to date on Cabrini Ministries and its work in Swaziland.

Join us in living the work. And do be sure to add your comments, and share this blog with friends.
