"We seek to understand and to develop all the dimensions and the riches of the feminine consecrated life, which places us at the service of the Church" Constitution no. 9
As Helpers we are called to witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ in a way that is open to present-day realities. We desire to be close to those who suffer. Our formation raises in us the awareness of all that can give hope to our wounded world.
As an International Congregation, our mission crosses many cultures and enables us to experience this diversity. Our formation throughout life invites us to continually deepen our faith life, develop our personal gifts and evaluate our attitudes in the light of the Gospel so that Christ may be reflected in our actions.
The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius are at the heart of our formation. They enable us to deepen our encounter with Christ and to grow in inner freedom. This allows us to hear the call to serve and gives us the courage to respond. The founding intuitions of Eugenie Smet, are integral to our formation. We want to be faithful to them and to be attentive to developing their richness in a creative response to the needs of our times.
