spirituality and mission of the Congregation of the Sisters of St. John
the Baptist stems from the original inspiration of
the Founder, Bl. Alfonso Ma. Fusco, to
follow in the footsteps of Jesus the Nazarene,
dedicating himself totally to the evangelization of the people of
Angri and caring for the needs of children. Especially the poor,
abandoned, marginalized and at risk.
of the Baptistine Sisters flows from the contemplation of Jesus
the Nazarene, as He carried out his mission in the streets of Palestine,
intent on fulfilling his Father’s project,
doing good to everyone, bringing
a human touch to people’s relationships and building the Kingdom of
two spiritual aspects of the life of the Baptistine Sisters,
which go right to the very root of their consecrated life and
inspire all their actions: “Being
spouses of Jesus the Nazarene” and
“Trusting in Divine Providence.”
The mission of the Baptistine Sisters took its inspiration from the life of Jesus, the Nazarene, but it is also linked to St. John the Baptist, protector of the Institute. He guides the Sisters in their commitment to holiness and inspires them in their mission to “Prepare the way of the Lord” as they lead young people towards real Christian values and promote their human dignity by facilitating their entry to civil society through a trade or profession.
