It was during the lifetime of St. Emilie,
who in the year 1847,
at the request of Msgr. Ceretj
the Oblate bishop of Burma
sent a group of six Sisters to Moulmein in Burma
for the work of evangelization.
In over a hundred years the province of Burma
flourished with renowned schools, hospitals, orphanages etc.
Then came the new socialist government in 1964.
