Education to be socially responsible, meeting the challenges of individualism and unhealthy competition leading to isolationism has become the need of the hour in our educative ambient, helping our young people to be integrated in body and mind.
We have 15 centres with 31 Academic Institutions. Nearly 94 sisters are engaged in this loving system of our apostolate. The educative mission of the Province is mostly carried out through Formal Schools. There is co-operation between the lay staff and the sisters.

St. Mary''s Teacher Training InstituteMedia awareness and education to be responsible for the earth we have inherited, political and social awareness, shape our young to be critical and dynamic not to be victims of the manacles of modernism. But instead make them protagonists who choose life versus death, optimism and hope in the face of death culture, peace in the wake of violence, journey into self at the onslaught of technological invasion.
Non-Formal Education has reached out to the youth who have no opportunity for regular school education. For the past Ten years the province has persistently focused its attention on the rural poor and apostolates which are not institutionalized and which offer greater scope to reach out to people in their ambient, journeying along with reciprocal bond of faith and solidarity.
Young girls who are from very poor economicThe professional Schools run by us are for the young girls who are from very poor economic and social backgrounds. They come to us for shelter and security for a short period of time. We try to give them integral formation and enable them to face life''s problems in an intelligent way. They become a great help in the families, parishes and sub-stations.
