The Religious Teachers Filippini was founded by Saint Lucy Filippini, and Cardinal Mark Anthony Barbarigo in 1692 in Italy to promote the Christian education of youth, dignity of womanhood, and a healthy family life.

We continue to regard the ministry of the Christian education of youth and adults, especially women, as our principal duty. We proclaim the Good News of Christ, in order that the power of the Gospel message may transform the human person from within and so renew the family and society. We reconcile the duties of consecrated life with the commitments of mission, integrating contemplation and the service of our sisters and brothers in the spirit of docility and gentleness. We move forward “Rooted in Christ; strengthened in faith; overflowing with thankfulness” (Col 2:7) to accomplish the mission entrusted us.

It continues the mission of Christ the teacher in many countries: Albania, Brazil, England, Eritrea, Ethiopia, India, Italy, and the United States.
