The DMMM Congregation since inception has grown from strength to strength as it follows the footsteps of Christ, the Merciful Saviour. Over the years, the Congregation has celebrated seven General Chapters. In August 2015, the following were elected to pilot the affairs of the Congregation for the next six years:

In December 2011, the DMMM Congregation celebrated the Golden Jubilee of its foundation. Last year, we celebrated our 7th General Chapter. The Foundation Members of our Noble Congregation celebrated the Golden Jubilee of their First Religious Profession of Vows on 20th August, 2016, a remarkable day that the DMMM Congregation commemorated her first joint celebrations of Silver and Golden Jubilee of First Religious Profession of her members. By divine providence the Universal Church in 2017 celebrated the Centenary of the Apparition of our Lady to the three little shepherd of Fatima, ortugal in 1917. A year we celebrated and renewed our pledge of commitment to our Lady whose patronage and assistance we rely on as a religious family. In the spirit of this exceptional celebration, 11 members of our Institute made First Religious Profession of Vows on 6th May, 2017 and on the Feast of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, 7 Sisters made their Perpetual Profession; and 40 Sisters celebrated the Silver Jubilee of their First Religious Profession of Vows. Like the mustard seed, the DMMM Congregation has grown and spread its branches to continents of Africa, Europe and the United States of America. Presently, there are over a nine hundred professed Sisters, 27 novices and 22 postulants.
