To promote the salvation and redemptive uplift of the people of God especially women and children, through catechism and faith formation, intellectual and vocational training, and other apostolic activities according to the needs of the people.
We live out this mission following the spiritual vision that permeated the life of our founder father, Saint Kuriakose Elias Chavara, who viewed God as his loving Father, fellow human beings as his brothers and sisters, the Church as his mother, and the whole world as his own family.
The charism of our Congregation is personal sanctity and redemptive uplift of the people of God, especially women and children, through the right blending of contemplation and action. Be holy and lead others to holiness is its essence.
