These sisters, for the most part, are involved in external works among the people.

“Our apostolic life is characterized by a threefold commitment: to the Church, to the Jewish people, and to a world of justice, peace and love. Whatever task we are engaged in , we are called to integrate in some way, these three dimensions of our apostolic commitment.”  Constitutions  #13
