Our Mission

Orione Care

Share this page

The work and charisma of Saint Luigi Orione (Don Orione 1872-1940) has been spread throughout the world by the missionary zeal of the Sons of Divine Providence. The congregations of priests and brothers (The Sons of Divine Providence) and sisters (The Little Missionary Sisters of Charity) are present in 32 countries worldwide.

In addition to the work of the Congregation in England, carried out under the identity of Orione Care, the Delegation also has a presence in these parts of the world:


Sarsfield House and Rossaveal Day Care Centres

Sarsfield House is a Day Care Centre for older people, providing meals and transport to 100 senior citizens per week. This service is available from Monday to Friday to people living in Lower Ballyfermot. The main aim is to combat loneliness and to encourage independent living and a greater enjoyment of retired life.


Our mission in Jordan began in 1985 with Frs. Joseph Tirello and Philip Kehoe. The Don Orione Complex consists of the church of Our Lady Queen of Peace, St Joseph’s Technical College and the Pilgrim’s Hostel. Fr Paul Bidone was involved in the initial work on this project. Our work is mainly concerned with the service of both Christians and Muslims who live in this area and particularly with the provision of help and support to Christian youth.

St Joseph Secondary Comprehensive School

St Joseph Secondary Comprehensive School for Boys provides a good level of academic (classes 7-12) and technical education in Information technology, computer programming and computer maintenance, hotel management, carpentry.

The Pilgrim’s Hostel

The Pilgrim’s Hostel is an accommodation centre available to pilgrims and groups from any part of the world at very modest prices.

The Shrine in honour of Our Lady Queen of Peace

The Shrine in honour of Our Lady Queen of Peace is in an area that is attracting many Christians. We also assist some of the religious communities in the area with Confessions, Masses and Retreats.

Kaburugi and Kandisi and Langata: The Mission in Kenya started in 1996 when Fr. Joseph Vallauri was sent out to Kenya to find a house for The Sons of Divine Providence. He opened the first formation house of the congregation at Langata, suburb of Nairobi. It continues as the formation and mother house in Kenya.

We accepted the parish of St. Peter’s in Kaburugi, about 75 km north of Nairobi on 13th December 1998 and we started our work in Kandisi on 9th September 1999 when an SDP father was introduced to the parishioners at a special service.

The First Kenyan Priest was ordained in November 2005. Our pastoral work includes parish apostolate, working with AIDS victims, people with disabilities, older people, a dressmaking school, nursery schools and a computer school.

In 2001 the first two priests landed in Bangalore to set up an exploratory mission. The mission became a reality in June 2002 when the first 8 boys arrived to join our newly opened seminary. As part of their training, our candidates co-operate with several local charitable institutions. They work mainly with: the handicapped, the elderly, street children, AIDS orphans and also at the Don Orione Centre. The Don Orione Centre is a welfare centre run by the Kripa Trust (a charitable trust recognised by the government of Karnataka State) with the co-operation of the Sons of Divine Providence.
