Apostolates We serve the Church through Perpetual Adoration, education, healthcare and other ecclesial apostolates. In so doing, we follow in the footsteps of Jesus who spent His public life praying, teaching, healing and ministering to others.
"Our service of the Church becomes fruitful only when it stems from a living union with God. It is through prayer that our apostolate must receive its dedication and strength and be an occasion of blessing for others." (Mother Theresia)
Like St. Francis who exhorts his followers not to stifle the spirit of prayer through activity, Mother M. Theresia also sets forth a similar directive: "Do not let your recollection or your union with God be disturbed. Even if Martha's work is weighing upon you, always seek to preserve Mary's spirit of prayer. Even with all your external occupations you can pray and your heart can constantly rest in God." (Mother Theresia)
Since every activity is for us a service of God it is therefore important and calls for our whole-hearted effort. We are aware that everything a person does is also a service to the community, and that our ministry of prayer, work, and suffering is part of the salvific mission of the Church. (Our Form of Life)
Sisters who through age or illness can no longer participate in the active apostolate share in the good works of the community in a significant way through prayer and suffering and obtain God's blessing for many. (Our Form of Life)
