We are an Institute of consecrated life with an apostolic purpose. We continue the work of Jesus the Teacher in our times (Const. Art. 1).
We consider our principal ministry to be that of Christian education of youth and of adults, especially women (Const. Art. 3).
“Religious” is the substantial nucleus of our oblation to God and of our mission as “Teachers”, consecrated through being invited to fulfill, with the heart of Christ, a service of love, above all among the young. For this, we are named Religious Teachers.
The name “Filippini” leads us back to the person of Lucy, on her journey of becoming Christ-like, which arose from careful contemplation of the Mystery of the Incarnation, of the Cross, and of the Eucharist.
