“The religious consecration makes it possible for us to be fully and constantly available to the mission.” -Cs.9

Inspired by the spirit of Sts. Bartolomea and Vincenza who lovingly attended those in any kind of poverty in order to serve Jesus himself in the suffering members of his body, we by being in solidarity with them in their human situation and by rendering them competent service, help them re-discover the meaning of their lives and regain their sense of human dignity (Cs 53) through Socio-welfare Service viz:.
