Our mission

We proclaim Jesus Christ within Church communion. We commit ourselves on promoting human dignity, mainly through integral education. We work in Church’s pastoral activity in different contexts as well as in contemporary society service through various professions.

We live in communities located in urban and rural areas, sharing life of local men and women in an attitude of service as Mary, Mother of the Church.
