Our goal is to form women alive to the needs of our world, with the knowledge which gives them power to act and motivated by the love which gives them purpose and wisdom in their action.
The education of girls from every social background has to be undertaken so that there can be produced, not only women of refined talents but those great soiled persons, who are so desperately needed by our times.
Mary Ward, who’s vision of education of girls was far advanced of her times, recognized the significance of the same and chose as her special area of service the education of girls. Her missionary zeal was taken up by Mother Teresa Ball, who’s vision for the world was ‘go and set the world on fire with the love of God’. We carry forward today, the traditions of a spirit of service, to labour, to extend His glory, to live in an attitude of discernment seeking God’s will in all and to make our own, the values of love, sincerity, justice and freedom.
