We continue the work of Jesus the Teacher through education, pastoral ministry, youth and young adult ministry, catechetical instruction, and retreat work. The Filippini Sisters, inspired by their Foundress, St. Lucy Filippini, "Go and teach the Word of God". We live the communal life in local convents in eleven dioceses and three archdioceses in the United States. As an international community, we are present in seven countries with our General House in Rome. Common prayer, daily Mass, rosary, meditation and Eucharistic Adoration nurture our community life.
