Our History and Past Work

This page details the dates and places where OHP have worked in the last 100 years.

Our past Branch House work was often undertaken following a specific request for Sisters. In some cases, the work was for a specific time period, and in other cases, the work has been handed on to another organisation.

Our very first work outside of Whitby was in 1924, where Sisters went to Tonge Moor, Lancashire, for four years to support a local school.

In 1926 our first overseas work began with four Sisters going to Cape Coast, Gold Coast.

The places where we have worked are still in our hearts and our prayers.
