Socio-Pastoral Ministry

The Socio-Pastoral Ministry, foreseen in our Foundational Charism, is being realized in today’s context through our concern for the promotion of the Kingdom values of freedom, fellowship and justice, through our shift from mere charitable works to developmental and justice oriented ministry. Social Pastoral Ministry in Nirmala Province involves the People in reconstruction and growth. Working in organized Social work centres in collaboration with different dioceses and NGOs can promote social justice and development. Upliftment of the poor, disabled, women and girl children are our prime concern.
