We claim as our Founder, St. Vincent Pallotti, a 19th century Roman priest, on fire with love for the infinite God, a man who inspired each person on his path in life, to join him in the apostolic mission of the Church: on a micro-scale in his own immediate environment, and on a macro-scale – going out to the whole world, if such be God's will. For Pallotti each person possesses a wealth of gifts from God: personal talents, special blessings from God, including a disease or handicap, offered for apostolic purposes.

We trace our beginnings from this same evangelical fervor. Our roots reach back to the Rome of 1838, when Pallotti, at the height of his own pastoral activity, began to develop avery intense cooperation with a group of apostolically-minded women, devoting themselves benevolently to works of charity. From them the first community of Roman Pallottine Sisters evolved.
They are the ones he chose specially long ago and intended to become true images of his Son ... (Rom. 8:29).
If all Christians must imitate our Lord Jesus Christ, with how much more perfection must those imitate him who are called in any way to continue the mission of Jesus Christ (Vincent Pallotti).
During the time of his public life, Jesus, the Apostle of the Eternal Father, invited men and women to be his disciples. Inspired by his Spirit, we, like so many throughout the ages, have set out to proclaim the Good News and to witness to his resurrection.
