Formation to faith

“Bartolomea and Vincenza founded the Institute to meet the demands of evangelization and aid to the poor in Lovere Parish”.

In parishes where we live and work we keep up Bartolomea’s enthusiastic and assiduous concern for evangelization and catechesis, animation of the liturgy and of ecclesial groups.

We are especially concerned with animating formative and recreational activities for boys and girls, in the field of pastoral care of the youth and of families. Well aware that we should seek the common good of the Church and be visible signs of Church unity, we work in collaboration with all the other components of the People of God. We undertake to proclaim the Gospel by life-witnessing and by word of mouth among peoples who do not know it yet and to co-operate towards the growth of the young Churches.

In some mission centres we carry out “mofussil work”: evangelization work in remote villages.

Our mission today

Wherever we are, we try to bring to fruition the “talent” given us for the benefit of our neighbour, through educational work, health care and formation to faith, while remaining alert to particular demands of our times and seeking ways most suited to the context in which we live.

We realize that inculturation is “a path we all must go by in order to be true neighbours” and do works of mercy with the same attitude of Jesus who “emptied himself, taking the form of a servant”.

In communion with him, who “came to serve”, and is always at work in human history, we take care of our neighbour putting to good use our typically-womanly resources and the virtues proper to our spirituality, training ourselves in dialogue and sharing and in collaboration with other ecclesial strengths.
