Patrons of the Congregation

Statue of Mary

Holy Mary, Mother of God

The life of Mary was focus on the listening.
She is for us an example how to follow the
way of service in listening to the God's calling -
to be always at disposal and persevere like
Mary near the cross of Jesus.

St. Rose of Lima

She is an example of living life dedicated to God,
with total commitment to the care for poor girls
and homeless women. It was for that reason that
she was chosen by our Founder as a patroness
of the congregation he was starting. Until now
St. Rose invites us to live the radical Christian life,
being deeply united with Christ, because that is
the only way to save the world.
