Most recently, my journey through the Maryknoll Sisters’ records have taken me to Japan. The Sisters have been in mission in Japan since 1946, so this collection is full of information about the Sisters’ ministries. The Sisters were missioned all over the country, but one particular house seemed especially busy to me.
The Kichijoji House in Tokyo was opened in 1967, and over the years, the Sisters living there would work in more than ten different ministries. Below are a few examples of the many jobs held and hats worn by the Kichijoji Sisters.
