Frassinetti - Our Foundress
The Sisters of St Dorothy were founded by Paola Frassinetti.
Paula was the only daughter among four brothers who
eventually became priests. Paula’s mother died when the girl
was nine years old. In need of a substitute mother, Paula
turned to Our Lady. Click
here to read more about our foundress.
The congregation is international and its main work is
education in a wide sense. Click
