Our Advocacies

Scalabrinian Vocation Promotion and Formation:

“Everyone is called to a particular vocation in life by God… The call to religious consecrated life is a gift to be cultivated and nourished for the honor it brings to God and the good it renders to the Church and society.

Education and Scholarship:

“Uplifting the lives of the poor but deserving students has always been a goal of the Scalabrinian education and scholarship programs but financial assistance has been scarce.”

Health Care:

“Health is true wealth, and thus a well and hearty Sister is a grace-filled Sister… A Sister who is sound of body, mind and spirit can continue to contribute her gift of presence and joy to the poor and the underprivileged.”

Retirement for the Elderly Religious:

“Life in the mission calls upon the religious missionaries that sense of total dedication to the needs of others. Such has been the case of our elderly Sisters, who gave their entire lives to the service of the people in mobility and the preparation of future generations of Scalabrinian missionaries.”

Pastoral Care to Migrants:

“Internal and external migration which means crossing the borders between nations, to find refuge from the turmoil of wars and solace from poverty and deprivations, is a phenomenon of all times. The aim of this advocacy is to provide migrants who leave their countries of origin such as refugees and asylum seekers, displaced and trafficked persons, victims of wars and political oppression with the basic human necessities, welcome shelters, physical and medical attention, protection of human rights and legal assistance.”

Infrastructure and Community Development:

“The necessity to optimize the use and upgrade the facilities of the existing buildings and edifices of the Sisters’ residence and School in the Philippines, the Provincial House in the USA, for it to enhance its current ministries, improve the Sisters’ mobility and implement innovative programs in order to adequately serve the needs of the peoples on the move, in the local and international level.”
