Life in CHRIST , Our Vocation
The story of Paul, Apostle to the Gentiles and our own missionary Patron, comes to confront us with the folly of the Cross: God's ways are not our ways.
The mission of the Sisters of St. Paul draws from Paul's example. They, too, have met Christ in a life-changing experience. They, too, by their consecration have embraced his mission of salvation
Paul the missionary journeyed not once, but thrice. While he lived, he was unstoppable – God's athlete running the good race to the end. In much the same manner did Fr. Louis Chauvet, Founder of the Congregation, live. The simplicity and humility with which he founded, guided and eventually offered his Daughters to the apostolate of the bigger Church was very much like Paul's: It is not ourselves that we are preaching, but Christ Jesus as the Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus' sake (2Cor. 4:5).
We reaffirm the Apostle Paul as our Patron. We resolve to enter more deeply into his Christo-centric and Paschal Spirituality ... so that after his example we may more effectively be “all things to all men ... spurred by the Love of Christ” (Provincial Chapter Affirmation, 1979).
"Paulinian Education is Christian and redemptive, concerned with the development of the whole person as a child of God."
"The S P C Health Apostolate in the country is a history of God's love, patience and compassion.."
"The Pastoral Care Ministry is Christ - centered committed to actualizing Christ's transforming love and solidarity with the poor."
The Sisters belong to the Lord. This is evident in their Institute as sign of their consecration and as witness to poverty
