The Skolapios/Piarist describe our mission as follows:
We, the escolapios, religious and lay people, “cooperators of the truth”,
like Saint Joseph Calasanz
we feel sent by Christ and by the Church
to evangelize educating
children and the youth, especially the poor ones, from early childhood, through the integration
of Faith and of Culture (Piety and Learning)
to renew the Church and to transform the society
in accordance with the Gospel’s values,
For that, we have received
a charism that comes from God,
a history, a spirituality, a proper pedagogy, people in communion,
schools and specific institutions,
that allow us to make Jesus, the Master, and
the Motherhood of His Church present in the little ones.
This mission is carried out in different ways in our presences in Indonesia and East Timor, as you can see.
