Missionary Sisters of Service (MSS)

The Missionary Sisters of Service is an Australian Catholic religious order, founded by Fr John Wallis, a diocesan Priest, in Tasmania in 1944.

Over the decades, the Missionary Sisters of Service community grew in numbers and into its mission and identity. Whilst initially focused on rural and outback areas, the Missionary Sisters of Service became a familiar presence in many areas of Tasmania and the mainland Australian States. The community has even reached out beyond Australia’s shores, to places like Singapore.

The Missionary Sisters of Service are represented in Tasmania by Sr Frances McShane MSS and Sr Lorraine Groves MSS.
