The Daughters of Divine Zeal are an international Italian order of Catholic nuns. The Sisters arrived in Richmond, Victoria in 1959 to the parish of St Ignatius, to do apostolic work with Melbourne's Italian migrants. They ran the Antonian Children's Home in Richmond from 1959 until it closed in 1979. In 1980 it was converted into the hostel, Madre Nazarena Students' House.
The name, Daughters of Divine Zeal, is translated as Figlie del Divino Zelo [FDZ] in Italian.
