The Pontifical Institute of the Religious Teachers Filippini
is an Institute of consecrated life dedicated to the works of the Christian Apostolate. 

Faithful to the original inspiration of our Founders, St. Lucy Filippini and Cardinal Mark Anthony Barbarigo,
we continue to regard the ministry of the Christian education of youth and of adults, especially women, as our principal duty.

Motivated by Christ, the teacher, the Religious Teachers respond to the changing needs of the times. The sisters serve in parishes, schools, universities and social work with those in need in the U.S., South America, Europe, Africa and Asia.

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.
