United as a religious family through their special devotion to the Sacred Hearts and by their profession of the evangelical counsels of chastity, poverty and obedience, the Sisters, Little Workers, live, pray and work together. Their life of communion, grounded in the contemplation and imitation of Jesus and Mary, is the source and support of all they do.
The Little Workers' principal ministry embraces a wide range of catechetical activity in parishes, such as directing religious education programs, teaching religious education, and educating catechists to form others in the Faith.
The Little Workers, however, consider themselves catechists in all that they do for the people of God. They therefore, are involved in various charitable works determined by the needs of the people and place in which they are stationed. Some sisters care for the sick and elderly by working as nurses and doctors in hospitals and in the nursing homes, and by caring for shut-ins. Other sisters are dedicated to youth ministry, working to meet the spiritual needs of young women and men through youth group activities, retreats, and individual spiritual direction. Many sisters are involved in early childhood, middle and high school education, seeking to lead children and young people to God as they strive to prepare them academically..
The EMBLEM was designed by our founder Father F. M. Greco while still a deacon in 1881: A crown of thorns, in the center of which are the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary, one transfixed and mounted by a cross, the other pierced by a sword, both of them surrounded by flames with the words: "Taste and See". Outside, at the base of the crown, the words: "Thy Kingdom Come".
This emblem is then like a synthesis of the intuition which constitutes our charism.
