  • To live in Africa in a tent with nomadic peoples.
  • To travel the road with the Rom, the Sinti and other Travelling peoples.
  • To be alongside those suffering from leprosy.
  • To share the conditions of prisoners.
  • 1946 first community working with other factory workers.
  • 1948 In the Middle East the Little Sisters adopt the different Oriental Rites according to the country.
  • 1956 First journey to Eastern Europe

In every community no matter how the Little sisters were housed, Little Sister Magdeleine fought for permission to have the Blessed Sacrament, making the chapel the centre of each house.
