The Philippine Mission

Humble Beginning



The  first Baptistine missionaries in the Philippines arrived in  April 23, 1983 in response to the invitation of the Bishop of the Diocese of Virac,  Most Rev. Jose C. Sorra, to serve the local church  and society,  particularly the poor and malnourished children.  The late Mother Alberta Stango,  general superior of that time,  sent the first two Italian Baptistine missionaries,  Sr. Aquilina Cascone and Sr. Ma. Cleofe Repucci,  to the Philippines to start their first mission community in the town of Virac,  Catanduanes. 

They were later joined on October 29, 1983 by another set of Baptistine missionaries  from Italy and Canada,  Sr. Josephine, Sr. Elvirita Vetrone and Sr. Lina Petrucelli,  who opened the mission community in Parañaque  in the Archdiocese of Manila. 


As the local girls started to join and become professed sisters in the Congregation,    the Baptistine communities in the Philippines expanded to the Archdiocese of Cebu in 1989 and the Diocese of Imus in 1998.   The Philippine mission was officially erected as a Delegation in 1992.  At the end of the year 2000,  the Philippine Delegation has already established nine communities that are serving the local church through the following ministries:  teaching, youth and campus ministry, human promotion especially of poor children and youth,   evangelization and catechesis,  family ministry and spiritual animation.

The Filipina Baptistine Sisters serve not only in the local church but also serve as missionaries in Italy, the United States of America, Canada, Chile, Korea, Mexico, Madagascar and Moldova.
