Aldeia da Paz Missionaries of the Poor
Welcome friend! We invite you to take some time to browse through our site and get to know us and our work.
It has been one year since the passing of our beloved Mons. Padre Mata. In September 2011, Monsignor João Pedro Baptista Mata was called by our Heavenly Father to His Divine Presence. The passing of Father Mata has left a great void in the lives of all who knew and worked with him. However, Father's legacy lives on through the Sister's of the Missionaries of the Poor. Sister Maria de Deus (Superior) and her fellow Sisters continue to be committed to serve the most vulnerable members of God's children.

"I was hungry, and you gave me to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave me to drink;
I was a stranger, and you took me in . . ." Matthew 25:35
