Social Service

Love of God and love of the poor were the catchwords of the Founders of the Congregation. Social Service activities of the Franciscan Clarist Congregation are based on the Spiritual Values and Christian Principles for the welfare of the poor and the marginalized. Every Community has one sister for Socio-Pastoral Service. Regular visits to the families, villages, slums, cities and towns help the sisters to respond to the needs of the people. A budget for Social work Activities is prepared at the Local, Provincial and General Level for each year. 25% of the income is spent for Social Service Activities. Special help of human resource and financial assistance are provided during natural and other calamities. Sisters working in these fields are given training and courses for their spiritual renewal as well as uplift of the ministry. At present we are working for the uplift of the people of different groups through various welfare activities.
