Currently in Pretoria live 3 consecrated persons: 2 sisters and 1 brother. Community activities range from those relating to internal life (kitchen, laundry, ironing, secretary, external manual work and maintenance of the area) to the pastoral ones of Koinonia.
The reference point of this reality is sr. Maria Grazia Abruzzo.
