Pastoral ministry
We in the pastoral ministry commit ourselves to:

  1. The integral evangelization of the people we work with and serve, preferentially to the poor, deprived, oppressed and exploited;
  2. Collaborate efforts, share decisionmaking and reflection in faith as a way of life;
  3. Fuller participation in the local Church's ministry;

The sisters are to collaborate with the parish and diocesan programs so as to be able to render their services to the local Church the bishop parish may ask their help in social ministry programs such as: catechesis, campus ministry, family counseling, prison apostolate and other apostolate meant to address pressing needs in the Church, livelihood programs are offered as well as vocational trainings that will give them a decent source of leaving.

In apostolic work the sisters actively collaborate with other agencies and religious houses such as the government's department of social welfare and development (DSWD), the Gift of love (Naga City) run by mother Teresa's missionaries of Charity, the Good shepherd home (Naga City) run by the religious of the Good Shepherd and the national commission on indigenous people (NCIP).
