Mother Pia’s missionary spirit knew no borders!

Students from Mexico attending Dominican schools in California in the 1900’s expressed interest in entering the congregation and their parents asked the Sisters to teach in their home country.

In 1909, Mother Seraphina Maerz traveled to Mexico with two Sisters. On February 9, 1910, St. Rose School in Atzcapozalco, D.F. opened. The Sisters taught residential students and orphans.
