Sisters arrived in Buda from St Pölten in Austria in the year 1770 at the invitation of the Empress Maria Theresa. They looked after the holy relic of St Stephen and opened a school. A few years later they moved to Pest on the other side of the river Danube and took over the present house and church which had previously been in the possession of the Dominicans. Here for almost two hundred years they ran a school, a teacher training college, a commercial and a boarding school. At the time of the secularization there were 430 sisters educating 6,000 children in seven schools.
 
During the communist period the schools were closed, the houses taken over and the sisters dispersed. However, some sisters continued to work with the ‘underground church’ teaching religion.
 
Today the sisters work in two schools one of which is a boarding school. Other ministries include spiritual accompaniment, youth work and pastoral ministry.
 
There are CJ communities in: Budapest, Budapest-Zugliget, Eger.
