Together with their engagement in school education, the Sisters engaged in different services under the all-embracing term, "work for the poor" - be that imparting the faith in the hillsides of Albay or the shores of Maasin, visiting families in the slums of Leveriza or administering basic medicine at St. Stephen's Patronage, feeding the hungry or distributing clothing to the naked .
In 1975 the Manila Priory Chapter articulated the "four-pronged thrust" of the Sisters' apostolate through a socially-oriented education in its institutions, health mainly through its hospital, the socio-pastoral apostolate, and work for tribal minorities. Subsequent General Chapters and Priory Chapters have identified priority needs of the times and of the place, and possible responses by the Sisters and their lay partners -
Primary health care
Self-determination and self-sufficiency
Crisis intervention and relief work...
