Welcome to Sisters of Our Lady of Fatima

Francis Xavier Kroot, the youngest of the eight children, five boys and three girls, was born on 7th December 1854, to Henry Kroot and Joanne Schrauwers. The Kroot families were one of the exemplary families of the town and parish of Zwolle in Southern Holland. After his primary school studies, Francis was sent to a Catholic boarding school at Roermond, Holland, where he studied music, calligraphy and languages such as French, German and Italian. While in Roermond his desire for the priesthood was born and he followed his brothers to the minor seminary at Culemborge and later to Mill Hill, London, for a missionary life.

Human Genius, with God’s help, has produced marvelous technical inventions. We make efforts that the means and skills of communication are put at the service of our apostolate where and when they are needed. We consider social communication media both as an important field to be evangelized and a means for evangelization, catechetical instruction and formation of conscience of people.
