The Institute arrived in Korea in 1984, and in 2012 it was established a Delegation. Currently the Delegation is made up of five communities: the Novitiate in Hoengsong, the Juniorate in Seoul, the Casa Santo Domingo de Guzmán in Uijeongbu and two other communities in the parishes (Casa San José in Hoengsong and Casa Sagrada Familia in Seoul). The sisters of the Delegation exercise their apostolate in retreat house and spirituality center, youth and children’s centers owned by the Institute, and also in other institutions such as parishes, hospitals, children’s shelter, middle school, university, etc.
