Our Services


The specific mission of our Congregation in the Church is to proclaim Christ’s great love for mankind. Wherever we are, we wish to stay close to those who are suffering and who, for some reason or another, have lost hope in life.

A needy person is considered “Special” by every one of us. Our foundress Madre Margherita dedicated her entire life to “loving and praising God through them”.

We seek to show God’s immense love for us.

Some of our services are:

·Instruct and educate both small children and youngsters in our school.

·Carry out social and helpful activities.

·Care for the aged.

·Care for the sick.

·Provide pastoral care.

·Help the needy and oppressed      


We are pastoral careers, teachers, nurses, social workers… ready to serve God, His Church and its disciples enfolding its cultural, economical and social differences.  Following the norms of our foundress Madre Margherita De Brincat, we strive to bring harmonious unity through contemplation and apostolic work.
